"An Assault on Local School Control"

"It is startling to see the Justice Department, which was such a strong advocate for integration in the civil rights era, urging the court to strike down the plans," according to this NYT editorial decrying the possible rollback of Louisvill and Seattle school integration plans. "The federal government is asking federal courts to use the Constitution to overturn educational decisions made by localities. Conservative activists should be crying “judicial activism,” but they do not seem to mind this activism with an anti-integration agenda."
