With the dual impetus of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 and
the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Chicago, like so many other cities,
began the process of desegregating its public school system. What
resulted was a unique study in the implementation and
transformation of public policy, as the city dealt with and pushed
back against directives and lawsuits from both the state and
federal governments. In this book, Dionne Danns provides the story
of how public policy on this historic topic was formed by
stakeholders at all levels, from superintendents to parents to
state and federal officials, and how politics and stakeholder
perceptions and protests determined outcomes for the school system.
