In the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision, the Supreme Court desegregated schools in the United States and deemed desegregated schools separate but unequal. Do you think this legislation was an appropriate response to segregation in schools?

First of all, it was not "legislation."
Legislation is what legislatures adopt. The US Supreme Court is not a legislature. (It too often acts like one, but it isn't really one.)
The Brown v. Board of Education decision by the US Supreme Court was indeed an appropriate response to racial segregation in schools. Because the "separate" schools were not truly equal.

Yes, I agree with Brown v. Board of Education. There was tons of evidence that separate but equal was a crock.
The other branches of government did not have the political will to ban segregation of schools.

the different answer is relatively lengthy, so in a nutshell it overturned Plessy v. Ferguson and stated there became into no such situation as "separate yet equivalent." The act of separation itself became into seen "demeaning" (won't be able to undergo in techniques the precise wording Warren used) and ought to in no way be equivalent. for that reason segregation rules have been overturned around the country, which ability all public faculties had to combine their lecture rooms. between the main needed situations of the twentieth century, if not the main needed.

Yes, it is.
