Abstract: This study was made to determine the legal basis of court ordered busing in order to desegregate public schools. The results of this study can add to the accumulated knowledge of school administrators/ school board members, and students when dealing with the problems of busing and pupil assignments for the purpose of desegregation. This information can serve as a foundation of information upon which decisions might be based and policies formulated. The process involved was an in-depth study of significant United States Supreme Court cases, as well as certain lower court cases, that had been involved in the employment of busing in order to desegregate a school system.
