In September 1957, Little Rock High School was a racially segregated all-white high school that received more funding than the racially-segregated all-black high school in the community. In response to Supreme Court rulings requiring desegregation and requests by the School Board, soldiers were dispatched to allow the Little Rock Nine to enroll.
In September 2007, fifty years later, Little Rock High School is a racially-segregated all-black high school that receives less funding than the racially-segregated all-white high schools in the surrounding area. There are currently no plans to desegregate either Little Rock High School or the racially-segregated all-white high schools in the surrounding area.
