Part 1: But it was more than that. He was saying that we lived in Westport because our parents are smarter and that people in Bridgeport aren’t as smart and that’s why they are where they are. As if this were a natural selection.
Part 2: The lawyers then questioned whether or not they could present the state with the large suburban and urban achievement differences.
Part 3: There were two sets of parents who were on the same side and always went to the meetings with one another. The parents asked the Hartford Board of Education tough questions. (Eaton 104).
Part 4: After attending the meeting for the school, Sheff was shocked in what she found. Previous to attending the meeting, Sheff was aware the area was largely segregated however she had no idea that ninety-one percent of the students in Hartford belonged to minority groups. (Eaton 107).
Part 5: Sheff was very intelligent and enticed everyone to listen when she spoke. Sheff never went to college but managed to be very knowledgeable about the issue. Sheff spoke boldly about controversial topics such as tax dollars being spent and where the money was going. It was clear she was going to have quite the effect on this case. “Elizabeth Horton Sheff hit the moral center when she spoke out. ‘We listened to her,’ Brittain said. ‘And we suddenly felt lucky.’” (Eaton 109).
