If ever a town labored for integration, it is Montclair. Since a 1968 court desegregation order, this suburban enclave has struggled mightily for racial balance in its schools and to keep its neighborhoods stable. The effort had seemed successful.

All the little Hispanic children are rounded up and sent to a special classroom.
