Quota

In Hartford, minority children were being denied seats in their neighborhoods’ world-class magnet schools. Why? Because the government forced the schools to reserve seats for suburban white children who don’t even want them. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund said “there are no empty seats” and “there is no quota.”

Hartford parents were told they weren’t seeing what they knew they were seeing. Quota shows their fight, in their words.
