Abstract

June 2007, the US Supreme Court released its opinion on desegregation in K-12 schools in Seattle, WA and Jefferson County, KY. The Court struck down the use of racial tiebreakers in both districts voluntary integration plans, impacting 1,000 school districts nationwide. My research is focused on how school districts will react to the decision. Will they drop their integration plans, alter them, or keep them? I am performing four case studies on the districts of Seattle, Jefferson County, Lynn, and Monroe County. In the aftermath of the Court's decision these school districts must decide if and how to encourage integration.
