The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund has launched a new blog tracking two key cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and the broader theme of school integration. The blog bills itself as a “national clearinghouse of Supreme Court School Integration information” and keeps an eye on integration developments from around the country as it awaits decisions in Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District and Meredith v. Jefferson County Board of Education—both of which challenge the legality of school districts’ race-conscious student-assignment practices. The court is expected to issue decisions in both cases by July.
