WHY/HOW DID IT ALL START?
EFFECT OF THIS EVENT
-In the Supreme Court, the court under Chief Justice Earl Warren declared that all PUBLIC school be desegregated.
KEY PHRASE IN THE RULING delivered by Chief Justice Earl Warren was as follows:
"Segregation of white and colored children in public schools has a detrimental effect upon the colored children. The impact is greater when it has the sanction of the law, for the policy of separating the races is usually interpreted as denoting the inferiority of the Negro group. A sense of inferiority affects the motivation of a child to learn. Segregation with the sanction of law, therefore, has a tendency to [retard] the educational and mental development of Negro children and to deprive them of some of the benefits they would receive in a racially integrated school system. ... We conclude that, in the field of public education, the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal."
-Ending segregation in schools lead to racial equality for the colored citizens.
-Creating equal education to all
-Create a better future for the country
-Now African American and other colored children gets an equal chance to learn like the white children in public schools
-This partly leads to the civil rights movements
