Sharp cut in busing plan reserved for L.A. schools

Nearly 100 schools dropped at the last minute from the city's desegregation plan are back in the mandatory busing program, Monitor correspondent Sara Terry reports. In another of the ongoing legal battles that have surrounded the peaceful Sept. 16 opening of schools here, the California Supreme Court has reserved a state Court of Appeals ruling that had sharply curtailed mandatory busing. The high court also upheld the right of Judge Paul Egly to design a desegration plan for the nation's second-largest school district.

It is expected that 96 schools eliminated from the plan on Sept. 15 by the local Board of Education will be returned to Judge Egly's program. That will mean that 153 schools and some 70,000 pupils will participate in court-ordered busing this year.
