THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

WSU Volume Questions Detroit Desegregation Case

Was the Detroit busing
decision of 1971 based on
distortions, omissions and
faulty assumptions in court
testimony?
Are pupils across the
country paying the price for
our illusions regarding the
benefits of integration on
education?
These questions are
raised in "Trial and Error:
The Detroit School Segrega-
tion Case," a new book
scheduled for June release
\ by Wayne State University
Press.
Author Eleanor P. Wolf
examines the official record
of Bradley v. Milliken, the
1971 case which advanced
"the most ambitious plan
for racial dispersion the na-

tion has ever seen" — a bus-
ing program encompassing
Detroit and 52 suburban
school districts. This re-
medy was later confined, by
the U.S. Supreme Court, to
the City of Detroit only.
The Detorit case, which is
described by the author as
"the triumph of the NAACP
strategy" is typical of the
major desegregation cases
in Northern cities. Says
Wolf, "It affords the best
opportunity to see with
greater clarity the issues
and judicial processes in-
volved in the school segre-
gation cases."
With the perspective ac-
quired from over a decade of
observation and extensive
research. Wolf, professor of

sociology at Wayne State
University, dismantles con-
clusions which were hastily
arrived at in an atmosphere
of extreme urgency and
political change.
Her careful scrutiny of
the court record reveals the
sloppy, unscientific nature
of the testimony which led
District Court Judge
Stephen Roth to decide that
integration — meaning ra-
cial balance — was the
panacea for low scholastic
achievement among black
children. The analysis
demonstrates the illogic be-
hind Roth's ruling that the
pro-integration Board of
Education committed acts
of de jure segregation,

which was the basis for the
sweeping busing decisions
of the 1970s.
Wolf points out how the
courtroom setting created a
situation in which social
scientists could not, did not,
or were not called upon, to
present the court with the
information necessary to
evaluate the issues — even
to that which was needed to
arrive at a single, accept-
able definition of the word
"integration."
In "Trial and Error," the
author examines the fail-
ures of public school educa-
tion which affected the out-
come of the Detroit busing
case, noting that "Bradley
v. Milliken was precipitated
into the courts as a conse-
quence of a movement
aimed in the opposite direc-
tion, the push for 'commu-
nity control' of the schools."
Her study moves to the
wider questions of the qual-
