The State of Public School Integration: Brown vs. Board of Education at 50

This website is based on the research of John R. Logan, director of the Spatial Structures in the Social Sciences (S4), an institute at Brown University that uses GIS technology to conduct spatial analysis of traditional sociological issues, such as race, school integration, public health, crime, and economic conditions. At the Cases and Data section, users will find a searchable database of information on desegregation court cases and trends in racial composition of elementary schools for 1968-71, 1989-90 and 1999-2000. A search by district will retrieve information on court cases in that district, if any were brought, and tables showing racial and ethnic composition of the elementary student population. Other sections of the site include reports prepared by Logan and staff dating from 2001-2004, such as The Continuing Legacy of the Brown Decision: Court Action and School Segregation, 1960-2000; a history of the Brown decision; the relationship between Brown and the Bush administration's No Child Left Behind Act; and a collection of related Web sites on Brown's 50th anniversary and the civil rights movement in the US.
