Neal Sharma4/22/143rdPeriod Brown v Board of EducationAll the schools in the United States could still be segregated if the case Brown v Board of Educationwas never brought up in the Supreme Court. The constitutionality of segregation in schools was tested by this case. Even though many people disagreed with segregated schools they still did not try to prevent it. Until this case was brought up in the Supreme Court every school in the United States was segregated and nobody thought twice of it. Brown v Board of educationis the most important case in the history of the United States because this case over turned the decision in Plessy v Ferguson, it changed the future of schooling in America, and it lead to the desegregation of blacks and whites in the United States. The very controversial case of Plessy v Fergusondetermined that segregation in schools was constitutional if the schools were “separate but equal”. Schools were allowed to keep black and whites separate as long as their facilities were the same.
