Description: From the Courtroom to the Classroom examines recent developments pertaining to school desegregation in the United States. As the editors note, it comes at a time marked by a ¿general downplaying of race and ethnicity as criteria for the allocation of public resources, as well as a weakening of the political forces that support busing to achieve racial integration.¿ The book fills a growing need for a full-scale assessment of this recent history and its effect on schools, children, and communities.
