Monroe v. Board of Commissioners
Monroe v. Board of Commissioners (1968) involved the adequacy of the city of Jackson, Tennessee’s, plan to desegregate its public schools in the wake of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Monroe is another one of the cases in which the Supreme Court reviewed the efforts of school boards, finding that it developed and administered a plan that allowed it to remain segregated. The Court remanded Monroe for modifications to create a unitary school system.
