Conclusion of decision
Conclusion of Decision "We conclude that in the field of public .education the doctrine of 'separate but equal has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that "the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation com plained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed b ythe 14th amendment. This disposition makes unnecessary any discussion whether such segregation also violates the due process clause of the 14th amendment.
