Paid to Desegregate: Civil Rights Bill of 1958 Would Put Teeth in Desegregation Laws

Record #:
Senate Bill 3257--the Civil Rights Bill of 1958--will provide amendments to strengthen the Supreme Court's decision on school desegregation. The Bill looks to provide funding to school districts to desegregate, have tax payers take over the cost of bringing suits against school authorities that do not comply, provide funding for expense incurred by those who seek educational training that meet desegregation needs, and also provide broad powers to the Secretary of Health, Welfare and Education.
