Summary
Over the past thirty-five years, federal courts have dramatically retreated from actively promoting school desegregation. In the meantime, state courts have taken up the mantle of promoting the vision of educational equity originally articulated in Brown v. Board of Education. This book is the first detailed analysis of why the state courts have taken on this active role and of how successful their efforts have been.--Book jacket.
