TO YOUR OVERALL GRADE. ITS DUE ON OR BEFORE OUR 
LAST CLASS MEETING.
1.   Batson described the situation in the Boston Public Schools as de 
facto segregation. What is the difference between de facto 
segregation and legally sanctioned segregation? How did Batson 
account for the situation in Boston? 
2.   In Boston, what was the difference between integration and 
desegregation? 
3.   Why did Hicks and others object to Batson’s description of the 
schools as segregated? 
4.   Why do you think Batson insisted that the schools needed to be 
desegregated? Why did she believe it wasn’t enough to fix schools 
in their local communities? 
5.   In the 1990s, President Bill Clinton argued there was a public 
interest in sustaining integrated schools. What is it? Is there an 
educational value to school integration? 
6.   What rights did the “forced busing” protesters think they had lost? 
What were the similarities and dissimilarities between the 
campaign against desegregation and the civil rights struggle? 

7.   Do you think that the white majority had a moral and legal 
responsibility to help blacks in Boston’s impoverished 
neighborhoods? Do civic responsibilities cross community 
boundaries or is each com- munity responsible for only itself? 
8.   How do you think young students would have reacted to the busing 
without pressure from their par- ents and the presence of the 
media? 
9.   In 
Milliken v. Bradley
, a case involving school desegregation in 
Detroit, Michigan, in 1974, the US Supreme Court ruled that 
busing procedures were confined to school districts within the city. 
In Boston, desegregation busing had also involved only city schools. 
What do you think would have happened if suburban communities 
had been affected by court-ordered busing?
