Abstract

This Note explores the debate between colorblindness and race consciousness while arguing that the multidistrict integration remedy called for by Sheff v. O'Neill does not directly address the true injury faced by minority students: inferior education. It examines the facts and background on the Sheff decision as well as other Connecticut cases involving school funding. Colorblind and race conscious theory is outlined as well as how each theory interacts with education. The Note concludes by explaining how integrationalists are missing the solution to the educational problems faced by minority students and how the true solution to them are not backward-looking, but rather to simply improve the inferior schools through the infusion of resources.
