Parent Option/Bailey-Ervin Plan
- 1963 (circa)
- The Bailey-Ervin plan was an anti-integration proposal put together by State Superintendent Tom Bailey and Attorney General Richard Ervin. The plan was intended to encompass the two ideologies of segregation and free public schools. In this broadcast by WTBT-TV, John Evans interviews the two men. Ervin and Bailey express the belief that white parents should be given an option that allows them to send their children to private schools, using state subsidies, rather than sending them to integrated public schools.
