Opinion "By Turning Our Backs on Bussing We Turn Our Backs On Desegregation"

Description

The opinion piece "By Turning Our Backs on Bussing We Turn Our Backs On Desegregation" published by The Collegian on November 18th, 1982, is about a decision made by the United States Commission on Civil Rights that supported the practice of school busing as a form of desegregation. A 1980 Gallup poll determined that almost 80 percent of white people were opposed to mandatory busing while a little over 30 percent of black people were against it.
