Abstract: The purpose of this historical study was to examine the legal aspects of court-ordered busing for the purpose of desegrating de facto segregated public school systems. The study sought answers to the following questions: What has been the trend regarding court-ordered busing in de facto segregated school districts? How has the United States Supreme Court ruled in cases involving de facto school segregation? What is meant by the term "intent' to segregate"? What has the United States Supreme Court required in busing across school district boundaries in order to correct an inequity in segregated school systems? To what extent has the United States Supreme Court mandated remedial plans to desegregate de facto segregated schools systems? The investigative process used consisted of an analysis of the judicial decisions rendered in nine significant United States Supreme Court cases concerned with desegregating de facto segregated school districts. Each case was reviewed in light of its facts, its decisions, and the legal precedents it established.
