Freedom v. School Busing & Vouchers

There's been a lot of flack shot against school busing recently and another issue, albeit submerged under vouchers, about forced integration infringing on the freedoms of parents (and students, I suppose).  I have not been convinced that either issue is an actual problem so I found it quite satisfying to read a little known decision by the Supremes (my affectionate name for the Justices) that they wrote way back in 1968; a case whose socially realistic decision against "separate but equal" still triumphs these pseudo-problems of individual rights.
