Milwaukee Public Schools Desegregation Collection, 1975-1987


The Milwaukee Board of School Directors created the Committee of 100 in March 1976 to serve as an advisory group to the board. The committee's main function was to represent the community in the preparations of plans for alternative schools and integration. The committee consisted of fifteen delegations, representing all the public schools. Fourteen of the fifteen delegations came from clusters, each of which was made up of one high school plus the elementary and junior high schools in its area. The fifteenth delegation was from Milwaukee Tech, which had students from throughout Milwaukee.

Kathleen Hart represented South Division High School in its cluster, and served as chair of the Human Relations Subcommittee on the Committee of 100.
