Courts have the responsibility to create racially balanced schools
Debate Rounds (4)
Affirmative assertion #2-Students and society benefit when more kids are able to attend racialy intergrated schools.More intergrated schools would give black and colored kids to get the same education white kids were getting. Also if schools were intergrated and they seen that it was actually working out society would most likely start to realize everyone could actually be equal and discrimination would be less of a problem.
Affirmative assertion #3-I believe the court has the power to stop discrimination. It would take some time but it can be done.
Negative Assertion #2: Courts are powerless to combat prejudice. One evidence would be that people had to start getting used to one another, eventually it did worked. Then the only person who can bring or put all races together in one place is the judge. The court does not have power to reduce the effects of racial discriminaton. The court puts whites and blakcs together but they still do not get along. By creating equlaity, it does not change the people's mind. Congress could've passed a law against force busing.
Negative Assertion #3: Schools shouldn't be used as battlegrounds to address inequality and discrimination. Fighting on school grounds is the only chance they have because that is when and where they only have the opporunity to see the other kids to get into a fight.
2.If the court let parents choose the school their child goes to wouldn't they choose a school full of blacks not whites ?
3. Wouldn't schools be the place to show kids how to come together as one and be equal ?
2. If they're getting the same education as the whites, are they also getting treated equally as them?
3. What can the court do to stop discrimination?
4. Will their be a riot after the court does stop discrimination?

2.If the courts gave the parents to choose the school their child goes too there will be a chance that they want their kids on what race they are. However, the courts are the one who"s putting the whites and blacks together meaning that the parents really don"t have any choice. The court puts them together, it took a while to have them get used to each other, but eventually it did work.
3.Yes, school is a place to show kids how to come together as one, but that is the only time they get to see each other. If they have the opportunity to see them anywhere else, of course they will have a battleground anywhere. School or not, they will fight.
#2 I understand what you are trying to say but the court did have some type of power because after a while they did have to get along and come together as one.
#3 I think they didnt use schools as a battle ground but seen school as like a chance to bring blacks and whites together as one that way everyone can be equal.
