Court ends control of racial balance

Ann Arbor voting wards




- - - L-L..-.1.-~

Supreme Court said yesterday racial
integration of public schools may be
achieved piece by piece, making it
easier for federal judges to stop su-
pervising broad desegregation
The 8-0 decision permits an end
to federal court supervision over
sfdent enrollment in DeKalb
County, Ga., even though schools
there have never been fully
A five-member court majority
also emphasized it generally is not
unlawful for Blacks and whites to at-
tend different schools if they live in
different neighborhoods.

achieved for its own sake," Justice

problems with the elections.
Things are still going pretty
smoothly though it's not over yet,"
Pittman said. "Things are smoother
than last year. Last year we had
problems with people not showing
up at polling sites but things are
better this year."
"The big problem yesterday was
that Rackham student government
ran out of ballots but they got more
to us today," Pittman said.
Fox said there had been a few
problems with the elections.
"There aren't people showing up
to work at polling sites and they're
running out of ballots. Otherwise I

Anthony Kennedy wrote.
"Residential housing choices and
their attendant effects on the racial
composition of schools present an
ever-changing pattern, one difficult
to address through judicial
The ruling could affect hundreds
of school districts nationwide, many
of which still engage in massive
busing for racial balance as part of
their court-supervised desegregation
Christopher Hansen, the
American Civil Liberties Union
lawyer who represented Black par-
ents in DeKalb County, said, "It's a
difficult decision to comprehend, but
we are very disappointed by it and

its overall tone."
He predicted the ruling would
cause "an explosion of litigation, and
given its lack of clarity who knows
how that's going to turn out." He
said many school districts now will
seek to end court supervision over
some aspects of their desegregation
"It seems the court's majority is
growing weary of its commitment to
racial justice. It is not prepared to
abandon that commitment, but it is
clearly frustrated," Hansen said.
Kennedy, writing for the court,
said, "Federal courts have the au-
thority to relinquish supervision and
control of school districts in incre-
mental stages, before full compli-

ance has been achieved in every area
of school operations."
He listed three factors federal
judges should consider in making
such partial-withdrawal decisions:
-Whether there has been full
and satisfactory compliance by
school officials in those aspects over
which supervision is to end.
-Whether continued court con-
trol over all aspects is needed to
achieve compliance in other areas.
-Whether a school district "has
demonstrated, to the public and to
the parents and students of the once-
disfavored race, its good faith com-
mitment" to integration.
Kennedy said judges should give
"particular attention to the school
system's record of compliance."

"We just need to be tougher and

from our workers and what our

In response to Rackham graduate
stuJent Patrick Moore's question
about recent changes in the
Michigan voting districts, Blanchard
said, "It's a real shame ... it means a
loss of influence and power and
clout when the delegates (from the
Democratic party) were finally
coming of age."
Blanchard said this fall's election
will be a measure of voter disgust
toward incumbents.
He said the real story of the 1992

presidential campaign is Gov. Bill
Clinton's qualifications.

"People who are just casually in

amazed with the time it takes to do
this job well," Grady said.
Hiselman said students could re-
late to him because he is "extremely
mellow" and "a modern man."
"The Libertarian party has two
things I think students really like,"
Hiselman said. "Economic freedom
and social freedom. ... One
Libertarian on council would make
life in this city a lot more enjoyable.
"We would probably vote with
the Republicans to make things a
lot less expensive in Ann Arbor,"
Hiselman said, "and would proba-
bly be making it a more liberal en-
vironment for having a good time."
He said the Libertarian party
supports the legalization of drugs
and elimination of the drinking age.

be able to relate to his candidacy.
