Abstract:

Abstract: This study examines California's historical use of segregation policy within its public school system as well as the state's official rationale for segregation as typified by the "separate but equal" doctrine. My focus is on the segregation policy known as "Schools for Migratory Children" and how this policy facilitated the segregation of Okie children during the Great Depression. Focusing on California's Kern County region, my research highlights the county's use of "Schools for Migratory Children" as a means to halt the integration of Okie children into Kern's public school system. This thesis shows that by segregating Okie children, Kern's school officials neglected to follow the state's doctrine of "separate but equal" as Okie children were subjected to sub-standard schooling and forced labor. Also, this study highlights the reaction of Okie children to segregation and second-class treatment in order to understand consequences inherently tied to segregation policy.
