Thomas A. Wiseman Jr., the U.S. district judge overseeing the desegregation of the Nashville-area schools, set an encouraging precedent in 1981. In deciding how to refocus the city's efforts to desegregate its schools, he took into account the results of the city's 10-year-old mandatory busing program.
On January 6, U.S. District Court Judge Milton I. Shadur approved a Chicago school-desegregation plan, developed by the city's board of education and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Justice, that relies almost exclusively upon voluntary measures--such as the transfer of students into magnet schools.
