The author begins by citing two recent cases on busing. He then proceeds to discuss Hoots v. The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The case arises from Pennsylvania's plan to merge several school districts. The author believes that the case could provide solid grounds for intervention by the Department on behalf of Pennsylvania. These grounds are noted.
