Description

The Sun-Sentinel reports that "In 1990, the Palm Beach County (Florida) School Board began a groundbreaking effort to desegregate schools by offering developers of new communities assignments to neighborhood schools in exchange for promises to market to black families and integrate their neighborhoods. The school districts agreed to desegregate its schools after the federal Office for Civil Rights found widespread discrimination against black children in schools. The story documented the insincerity of those who signed the agreements, along with neglect on the part of the School Board, which never enforced them."
