Race should not be used as a basis for school assignments. Administrators took responsibility for all educations. Brown promised equal education opportunity. Competitive workforce in global economy. Court ordered desegregation plans do more harm than good. Schools should not be used for battle grounds. Fighting would just show the kids that fighting on school grounds or anywhere else is ok.
