Case Study: Brown V. Board Of Education

118 Words1 Page

Why do we need oversight? Why do we need to guard change? The author states that if “left unattended a new law or policy can turn out to be totally ineffective” (Mandell & Schram, pg. 482). If no one enforces a law who says it will be followed? That is why “an organized constituency must monitor the process of implementation” (Mandell & Schram, pg. 482). A case that brings this point home is, Brown v. Board of Education. This case outlawed segregation in all American public schools but it took “hundreds of individual lawsuits and watchful citizen groups to achieve a modest amount of desegregation in six decades since the law was passed” (Mandell & Schram, pg. 482).
