De facto segregation in the North: Skipwith vs. NYC Board of Education

Notes to teacher: 

The document study "Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education""Responses to Skipwith v. New York City Board of Education" includes letters that Judge Polier received after her Skipwith decision. Some of these letters were positive and complimentary, others were not. In an effort to represent both sides, we have included a letter from a school teacher in Indianapolis that is quite negative in the way that it refers to African American students. Please be sure to review this letter before teaching the lesson and contextualize it for your students.
