Chairman Robert Peck Comments on Integration
(WSLS Television, Roanoke, VA)

Arlington County School Board Chairman Robert A. Peck discussed the possibility of schools being integrated in January in accordance with Federal District Judge Albert V. Bryan's decision. Judge Bryan had delayed the admission of four black students to previously all white schools until January. Peck asserted that the Board members would have to assess the situation within Virginia and the country in the following months before determining the correct course for Arlington's schools in January, also suggesting that the Judge's ruling might open new avenues.
