Busing Created White Racism

A few years ago I was speaking with a white female schoolteacher about her problems of dealing with a multi-racial classroom. I described my school days and the cooperation of the class with discipline so that the teaching function could proceed. In my school days, white boys were more rowdy than the intimidated cowed beings they are today with their manhood under continual assault. The teachers had unchallengeable authority backed up by principal and parents. It was such firm authority that it did not have to be used.

I told the teacher my theory that busing destroyed discipline because it destroyed the PTA–the Parent-Teachers Association which ensured parental input and support for the education function of the school. Busing meant that for many parents, the school was too far distant to attend regular meetings, and the PTA shriveled away.
