1. Changes occurred in seattle’s schools following a supreme court decision in 2002? Before the decision, the entering ninth grade class at Ballard High was nearly equally divided between whites (55percent) and nonwhites (45 percent). After the decision, the nonwhite population dropped to 32 percent. The same effect was seen in middle schools and elementary schools. 2. Section eight of the federal housing act? How is it used to perpeyuate segregation in urban areas?
