ABSTRACT
The article reports on the policy of Virginia with respect to the U.S. Supreme Court decision against race segregation in the public schools. They are not ignoring the decision in this state, or just letting it simmer. There has been neither compliance nor defiance. But there has been an inordinate feeling of urgency in building roads around it. The proposed amendment of the Virginia constitution, however, is part of a program, which is moving with something more than the "'deliberate speed" ordered by the Supreme Court to get state subsidized private schools going before the next school term.
