Description: This resolution passed by the Greensboro City Board of Education on July 23, 1957 rescinds a May 21 resolution, and allows Superintendent Benjamin L. Smith to temporarily assign students to schools for the 1957-1958 school year if a child has not been assigned to a school or their place of residence has changed from the previous year. This resolution was among several passed by the Greensboro Board of Education to address how the city would desegregate its public schools in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the state legislature’s passage of the Pearsall Plan.
