committee reports, court exhibits and depositions, declarations, interrogatories, enrollment statistics, student testing result
studies, trial notes, news clippings, and information concerning similar court cases. The collection is divided into two
series: Research Files and Court Records.
The San Diego City Schools originally followed a neighborhood school policy, under which students attended the school nearest
their homes. Therefore, the schools reflected neighborhood segregation. While wealthier whites could afford to move to newer,
more expensive neighborhoods with better schools, the lower income minority populations remained in the older, less wealthy
neighborhoods with older schools.
