Michigan Law Review

Like welfare reform, the controversy generated by school finance litigation and reform has, on the surface, little to do with race.

Beyond The Hero Judge: Institutional Reform Litigation As Litigation, Margo Schlanger

Reviews

In 1955, in its second decision in Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court suggested that federal courts might be called upon to engage in long-term oversight of once-segregated schools.
