After 51 years of litigation and three earlier plans to desegregate schools in a Mississippi Delta district, a federal judge says more work is still needed.

U.S. District Judge Debra Brown ruled that the town of Cleveland must merge its two high schools and two middle schools.

"The delay in desegregation has deprived generations of students of the constitutionally guaranteed right of an integrated education," Brown wrote in Friday's 96-page opinion. "Although no court order can right these wrongs, it is the duty of the district to ensure that not one more student suffers under this burden."

  1. An almost entirely black school and a half black half white school? Wow, really segregated. Sounds a lot more like geographic demographics. So we'll make one school out of it and it'll be 75% black 24% whites. Sounds more like control to me. Living in MS myself, the final school will end up 5% white. If you want your children to be able to read and write There are only a handful of public schools left in the state that can still do that. Everyone else goes to private/parochial/charter or home schools. MS public education is in the toilet.
