Negative assertion #2 Courts are powerless to combat prejudice. The courts are powerless because they weren't really able to do much and the mayor just told them that it would be okay, they were trying to get Washington to pass a law for it but that wasn't really working and the white people were still scared overall.
Negative assertion #3 Race should not be used as a basis or school assignment. They should not be used because parents wanted better neighborhood schools for their children, it left black kids in overcrowded schools and because no child left behind was a tool to help teachers to teach better to students of every race.
- How does your evidence support negative assertion 2?
- How does your evidence support negative assertion 3?
If the kids go to schools only in their neighborhood wouldn't they still be segregated?
Wouldn't it be dangerous for kids especially younger kids, to get to school if they come from different neighborhoods?
- If the schools are segregated.
- It wouldn't be dangerous unless the schools are segregated.
-Courts were sort of powerless because they were really trying to make everything alright but the community was rebelling and it scared some people.
-The no child left behind was a tool that helped teachers teach every race but black kids were actually being left in overcrowded schools.
admiregenesisxo forfeited this round.
- Although the students could have benifited from going to racially integrated schools it did more harm to them because they were not able to concentrate due to riots and chaos being caused by the community. It was actually keeping the students from learning.
-The judges really shouldn't have been able to tell parents that schools should be segregated. They could've gave their opinions but the parent should have the right to say where their child goes because thats their child and the parent is responsible for the childs saftey.
