The District of Columbia’s desegregation case was based on the boycott of the black high school that was overcrowded and in a condition of desperation. Since the District of Columbia was a federal territory, the Fourteenth amendment was not applicable towards the justification of the case’s position. Lawyers of the case selected a different approach of consolidating the Fifth Amendment, which guaranteed the equal protection of the law maintaining the same manner of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Imagine the United States in its near future: while a select few successful, affluent and influential people take power over the rest of the country and essentially control the way it operates domestically and internationally, the remainder of the population remains at a state comparable to the Great Depression in the 1930s, where unemployment rates are high, few unskilled jobs are available to the public, and the majority of urban residents are forced to rely on soup kitchens and live in shantytowns. The state of most United States schools today is absolutely atrocious, and should they continue to educate the modern generation of children and teens, a dystopian society is bound to arise in what is now considered one of the most powerful and
Declared in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UN, 1948), education is recognized as a fundamental human right and a key component contributing to the development of societies. Yet there are many people on earth have not been able to get educated. In order to solve the problem, it is proposed that all education (including primary, secondary and higher education) should be free all over world and governments should be those funding the tuition fees.

Racial segregation has always been, and continues to be, a significant issue in the field of education. The 1954 ruling in the Supreme Court case Brown v.

Affirmative action was one proposal that ensured an equal balancing of race among school and work settings. Recently, however, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of state bans on affirmative action.
The American Education System is decand is in need for change. Not so much in the fact that the system is bad, it is just old and outdated. The classrooms in America look the same as they did one hundred and fifty years ago.

While looking at countries like Finland we see that they spend a significant amount more than the average that other countries spend on education.
In the 1954 landmark school desegregation case, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka (347 U.S. 483), the U.S. Supreme Court settled that it was unlawful to discriminate against a group of people for arbitrary reasons. The Court determined that education was defined as a important part of government that should be given to all citizens equally.

Two court decisions in 1972, Pennsylvania Association for Retarded Children (PARC) v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Mills v. Board of Education, District of Columbia started a bustle of litigation pertaining to the education of children with disabilities. The litigation, along with vocal and the combined efforts of parents and politically powerful advocacy groups, led to federal legislation in 1975 for students with disabilities.

According to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1968) “Segregation is the adultery of an illicit intercourse between injustice and immorality.” These policies created racial segregation between illegal immigrants by promoting that they should not be able to have access to everything a citizen can.

These individuals already had many challenges or intersects that they needed to overcome by these policies it just added more.
