Subject

MUHS and Integration; race relations; civil rights; school integration; busing (school integration)

Description

Impact of Judge John Reynolds' ruling that Milwaukee Public Schools were unlawfully segregated and must start integrating for the 1976-77 school year. Also details the changes to admission applications after integrated busing in Milwaukee. MUHS thought they'd see an increase in transfers saw a slightly lower total of transfer than normal; Marquette took the same stand on transfer from the public schools as did the Milwaukee Archdiocese: "that we would not become a haven for students to get away from busing." Also mentions the attempts to achieve student racial balance with the summer school program and encouraging inner city youths to take the entrance exam.
