Assertion #1: In 1974 court-orderly busing was only strategy that could have desegregated Boston"s schools
-the students needed better education but the higher power didn"t want them to have power at all.
-Segregated neighborhoods went to neighborhood schools.
Assertion #2: Students and society benefit when more children are able to attend racially interrogated schools.
-if students are racially mixed it would decrease the number of bullies.
-Different race students would feel less lonely because there is more of the same "kind" of people in the same place.
-academics improve because the students are not always distracted by the bullies.
-self-esteem is better because they have people to blend in with and not be put down because they stand out.
Assertion #3: To create a desegregated school system, a judge should be able to tell parents where their children must attend school
-a judge would choose a school that is near by the neighborhood the student lives in but it might not be a good neighborhood the student lives in.
-even though there are schools in every neighborhood if the neighborhood is not a nice place the schools won"t be either.

Negative assertion #1: Court ordered desegregation plans do more harm than good
Desegregation plans do more harm than good because childrens are exposed to more violence and they are more descrimination also it upsets settled expectations for people who work theyre whole life for something.
Negative Assertion #2: Courts are powerless to combat prejudice
White"s diddint care what negroes did with their children they would still be them. The courts would never stop prejudice because just by been told not to it upsets peoples cultures because they believe their right and they should be like that. Even though theres no alternative to compliance with the laws set out by supreme court of US.
Negative Assertion #3 Schools should not be used as battlegrounds to address inequality and discrimination.
Schools should not be used as bettlegrounds because kids cant defend themselves , even though they learn from eachothers cultures.
This a quote is from one of the young african american student. He said ; "im not going near any school to get hurt. When its cool I"ll go."

I wish you had made more of an effort to be here; I know you have passionate things to say and I like to read them. I"m looking forward to reading your final exam. Your questions and curiosity will be sorely missed by me in future years.
