- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
It was whether or not segregated schools could offer equal (truly equal) education for all.
"Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954), is a landmark decision of the United States Supreme Court which explicitly outlawed racial segregation of public education facilities (legal establishment of separate government-run schools for blacks and whites), ruling so on the grounds that the doctrine of "separate but equal" public education could never truly provide black Americans with facilities of the same standards available to white Americans"Source(s): Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_v._Board_of_Edu...
