Brown v. Board of Education
By Khris & Matt 1B
The Brown decision hit the country like a bombshell. Reversing segregation was not going to come easily, and the Court realized the tremendous resistance local politicians and school boards would have to its decision. Therefore the Brown decision called for a reargument on the issue of how to bring about the constitutional mandate of desegregation. The following year, in Brown II, the Warren Court charged local federal district courts with the task of assessing local obstacles to integration and deciding whether local school boards were implementing good-faith attempts at desegregation. The nation's public schools were ordered to desegregate "with all deliberate speed."
