  1. “The Way We Learn”Separate and Unequal in Metropolitan Detroit Schools

  2. Brown v. Board of Education May 17, 1954, the United States Supreme Court declared that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal."

  3. Excerpts from Brown v. Board of Education Does segregation of children in public schools solely on the basis of race, even though the physical facilities and other "tangible" factors may be equal, deprive the children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities? We believe that it does. …… We conclude that, in the field of public education, the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment.

  4. Metro Detroit is the greatest center of school segregation in the nation.

  5. Segregation in Metro Detroit The Detroit school district is 91% black and 3.7% white (2003).

  6. Metro Detroit by Race % white % black % other Detroit 12.3 81.6 6.2 Grosse Pointe Township 93.9 0.6 5.5 West Bloomfield Township 84.2 5.2 10.6 Bloomfield Hills 90.7 1.6 7.7 Farmington Hills 82.9 6.9 10.1 Birmingham 96.1 0.9 3.0

  7. “The schools that say separate but equal is the most extensive social experiment in the United States history. We’ve tried it in thousands of places for many generations. It never worked anywhere as far as I can tell…There never was a separate but equal school system… …a suburban teacher would call me and say, you know, we’ve read your study, we decided to actually go in and see what the same exact class looked [like] in a counter-part school in Chicago…it was like a different planet, a different society.” From the testimony of Gary Orfield, witness for United for Equality and Affirmative Action (UEAA) in Grutter v. Bollinger
