Description

Mary Ann Hardenbergh, who served as a member and as chair of the Massachusetts State Board of Education, reflects on her experiences during the time surrounding the 1974 Garrity decision, which required some students to be bused between Boston neighborhoods with the intention of creating racial balance in the public schools. She discusses her involvement with the decision and the concept of forced busing; her experiences living in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood; her children’s educational experiences; the issue of race in Boston; and possible alternatives to the plan that was implemented as a result of the Garrity decision. She concludes by discussing the current state of education in Massachusetts.
