Integration of Schools in Little Rock, Arkansas
In September 1957 the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that
declared segregation in public schools unconstitutional
The court had mandated that all public schools in the country
be integrated with all deliberate speed in its decision
Related to the Brown v. Board of Education case on May 17,
1954
Background of how the Executive order came about
What are the Constitutional responsibilities of the
President in this case?

Dwight Eisenhower wanted to uphold the Constitution and the


laws, but also avoid the confrontation in Arkansas with the 9
students of color (Eisenhower and the Little Rock Crisis)
After Governor Orval Faubus called in the nation guard to block
the students from entering Central High, Eisenhower sent in
federal troops to escort the Little Rock Nine into the school as
they started their first full day of classes on September 25 of
that month (Integration of Central High School).
What is the role of Federalism in this case?
Federalism- Constitutional arrangement in
which power is distributed between a central
government and subdivisional governments, called
states in the United States.

Governor Orval Faubus called in the nation


guard to block the students from entering Central
High, Eisenhower sent in federal troops to escort
the Little Rock Nine into the school as they
started their first full day of classes on September
25 of that month (Integration of Central High
School)This is a clear example of federalism in
where the state laws are different from the
nation's laws.
How might the framers have viewed this case study? (would
they view this as a good move for america or no)
The framers would have view this case as the true definition of
change. The framers believe in equality but we dont know if they truly
believe Africans Americans are truly equal to whites. Clearly they will be
some argument of equality between African Americans and Whites. On
the other hand some might have a positive view of the educational and
social change of America.
