4 other cases were heard by the Supreme Court so they ultimately just grouped them all together, making it The Board V. Education of Topeka Case. “ Oliver Brown was chosen as a plaintiff because he was a married man and employed” (Warren 21),they thought that the courts would take them more seriously if the plaintiff was a man, employed, and married.

Firstly, free municipal education hardly ever is efficient. According to the author, almost 60% of the public school teachers do not have even an undergraduate degree (Boo 85). Mirchi and other similar schoolchildren are not likely to acquire necessary education that could have potentially helped them and their families to escape poverty. Moreover, they risk learning nothing at all since at public school they mostly “play, take recess, play again, then have lunch” (Boo 85). This is not surprising given the fact that the teachers, such as Asha, often ignore their responsibilities and do not go to school (Boo 33).

The next day she switched it, so the kids with blue eyes were now inferior and the kids with brown eyes were superior.
