    In the milestone case of Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court ruled that public schools must be desegregated.

    This case addresses Amendment X regarding State's Rights. After the Supreme Court's ruling on this case in the 1930's, the southern states renewed their claims to the so-called states' rights and in March one hundred members of the U.S. Congress issued the Southern Manifesto, protesting "the Supreme Court's encroachments on rights reserved to the states and to the people." These legislatures argued that the education had long been the province solely of the state and the government and that the federal government had no right to intervene. (Monk 197)

    This case also speaks to Amendment XIV of Equal Protection Under Laws. The Supreme Court ruled that separate education facilities are inherently unequal. (Monk 221)
