As part of the Great Michigan Read "Arc of Justice" programming, Detroit Public School students of the Detroit Urban Debate League will hold an exhibition policy debate on contemporary segregation issues. Students will debate the effects of the Milliken v. Bradley decision to limit court inter-district school desegregation remedies. Milliken, started as a reaction to Detroit desegregation cases, became a landmark Supreme Court case for judicial remedies. Topics include court politics, busing remedies, and public school segregation. Students have competed for the opportunity to be selected as competitors and have prepared in-depth policy analysis with special assistance from the National Champion Michigan State Debate Team.
