Abstract: This study is an attempt to investigate several aspects of private education in relation to desegregation in the nation, the eleven Southern states, and North Carolina. The history of private schools and the evolution of the Southern academies are examined along with the alternative schools which have been proposed since the Brown decision of 1954 and the initiation of forced busing. The use of busing in the past on the national level in general and in North Carolina in particular is reviewed. It is shown that since forced busing is controversial, it often obscures the fact that the busing of students did not originate with desegregation efforts. The history of court decisions and legislation which first supported and then ruled segregation in the schools as unconstitutional is treated.
