School districts tried to alleviate this by bussing students out of high poverty areas and into better school districts that were often as nearby as 20 miles. However, there were waiting lists to get into these better schools, and then parents of students in the better districts would complain that they didnt want 'lower educated' children amongst their student population.

What is segregation de facto?

Racial segregation, especially in public schools, that happens "by fact" rather than by legal requirement. For example, often the concentration of African-Americans in certain neighborhoods produces neighborhood schools that are predominantly Black, or segregated in fact (de facto), although not by law (de jure). De facto segregation means that there is, in reality, segregation. Consider racial segregation of schools in the U.S. There was a time when some states had legally mandated segregation -- separate schools for Black and White students. This is no longer the case. However, some places still have de facto segregation where certain schools are virtually all White and others are virtually all Black. This could happen because the Blacks of a district live in the same area and use the same local school. And they might live in the same area because it is where they can afford the housing, or because whites in a formerly mixed neighborhood have moved away.

Why is de facto segregation harder to change than de jure segregation?

De jure means "by law" and de facto means "as a matter of fact." So De jure segregation is segregation required by law (such as a school being segregated because there is a law requiring it), whereas de facto segregation is more just by chance (such as settlement patterns in a city leading to segregated schools).De facto segregation is segregation by fact or circumstance. Very often this is not a conscious choice. A good example is found in neighborhoods, frequently there is a white neighborhood or a black neighborhood, this concentration can lead to schools that are predominately one race. (Xe facto is latin for by fact.)"De facto" means the person who is serving in that position, or as "in fact"; whereas "de jure" means the person who is legally entitled to perform that function, or "by law," and has the right to perform a function or hold an office. It is important to note that hundreds of years ago, women did not have certain rights, and their husbands would perform the functions for them, although there are other latin terms for that.
