Abstract or Introduction

This paper takes a look at the historic decision of the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education and attempts to analyze it in regard to its research questions, being the following: Did the desegregation of the American public school system better the educational achievements of black students? Did the decision of Brown result in a more equal educational setting for African Americans and marked the transformation of America's public schools? What impact on the education of African Americans did the case of Brown, measured in actual factual consequences, have?

The decision is oftentimes referred to as historic and groundbreaking, which is irritating to a certain degree when looked at the reality in US schools today. To understand the need for such strong words for a Supreme Court’s decision, one must understand the road leading up to the landmark decision. Chapter 2 offers a brief overview of the cases which paved the way for Brown. Chapter 3 dives deeper into the social implications surrounding the case and analyzes Brown's factual impact. The conclusion in chapter 4 summarizes the findings and highlights its vital points.
