Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


On March 20, 1972, President Nixon proposed two pieces of legislation, one a moratorium on court-ordered busing of elementary and secondary students, and the other entitled the Equal Educational Opportunities Act. Preliminarily, the bill would have Congress find that dual school systems are unconstitutional, that dual school systems have been virtually abolished, that extensive transportation of students has been ordered, and that such transportation is expensive and harmful.

The following comments are based on Professor Carrington's testimony of April 12, 1972 before the House Committee on Education and Labor.
