Moakley Oral History Project OH-067
Patricia J. Reid, daughter of former South Boston High School headmaster Dr. William Reid, reflects on the impact of the 1974 Garrity decision, which required some students to be bused between Boston neighborhoods with the intention of creating racial balance in the public schools. Ms. Reid discusses her father’s reaction to the decision; community responses to busing and to Dr. Reid; her opinion on the issue; and the public school system today.
