(p.243) Chapter 11 Reading Thurgood Marshall as a Liberal Democratic Theorist
Education, Justice, and Democracy

Anna Marie Smith

University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines several court decisions pertaining to distributive justice and the school system in order to present a fuller portrait of the “Milliken” and “Marshallian” theories of democracy. It discusses two types of cases in particular. First, the chapter interprets cases involving race, especially segregation and voluntary pupil assignment, as confrontations between these two theories of democracy. Second, it provides a somewhat briefer treatment to the cases that arise out of the challenges to the states' public school funding schemes on behalf of low-income students.

Keywords:   distributive justice, Milliken, Justice Thurgood Marshall, democracy, race, segregation, voluntary pupil assignment, public school funding, low-income students
