De Facto Segregation in the Northern Public Schools; Its Anatomy and Treatment

By Joseph B. Robison

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1962

While the civil rights movement is accustomed to confronting legally mandated and intentionally imposed segregation, the author notes that de facto racial segregation in public schools (which results not from direct discrimination but from spillover from discrimination elsewhere) presents difficult challenges. The author presents evidence supporting the claim that such segregation remains unequal and harmful in ways similar to legal segregation. He further advocates a number of procedures which can be used to attack de facto segregation, explores limitations of these approaches, and concludes that a broad approach is needed to address a spectrum of relevant problems in the public education system.
