ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of the ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court wherein it refused to rule that the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause forbids racial discrimination on minority students. This ruling is said to continue the misguided policies on school discipline imposed by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), along with litigation destructive to schooling. Also noted is the use of disparate impact analysis of OCR to penetrate school finance.
