Settlement in Hartford Desegregation Case

The parties in the long-running desegregation case in Hartford, Conn., have reached a tentative settlement "that seeks to reshape how the state addresses persistent racial isolation" in that city's schools, the Hartford Courant reports here.

The Courant has posted the settlement document here.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund has this press release, and the American Civil Liberties Union has this release.

The Sheff v. O'Neill suit in the state's courts has been going on for nearly two decades. Education Week last reported on the case here and here.
