Does a new legal settlement really settle a 30-year-old lawsuit to integrate Hartford's schools?
After more than 30 years, the Sheff v. O’Neill case has finally reached a settlement. The landmark lawsuit was meant to integrate the school system in the Hartford area. Elizabeth Norton Sheff filed the lawsuit in 1989 on behalf of her 10-year-old son Milo. He is now a 43-year old-grandfather.
We speak with the lawyers who have worked on this case to find out if the settlement achieves the original goals of the lawsuit.
And we have a Newsmaker interview with Connecticut State Senator Will Haskell. He speaks with TFS host Tom Kuser about his new book, “100,000 First Bosses: My Unlikely Path As A 22-Year Old Lawmaker.”
