Ga. school desegregation case nearing end

MACON, Ga. (AP) _ A 45-year-old school desegregation case will draw to a close with Bibb County’s final filing to complete the historic case.

 In March, a federal judge lifted a 1970 desegregation order, ruling that the school system had met its obligation to integrate black and white students.

 

The last requirement was for the school system to submit its final annual report on racial progress by Wednesday and do one last round of majority-to-minority transfers this school year.

 

After the files are checked by the Department of Justice, 10 boxes of reports and other legal filings in the basement of the federal courthouse will be sealed tight and sent to state archives.
