As someone who lives in North Carolina, the federal government does not need to pull Federal Funds for this to happen. Research the way that school lines were drawn in Raleigh after Brown v Board. Hell the school district I am trying to land a job currently having integration issues, and I think they might still be under a federal desegregation order because in 1965 someone burned down the K-12 Negro/Black school in the county.

First, they would actually have to take a step forward in order to take that step backwards.
I posted this because I have done research on this issue because it has always been a special place in my research heart after I learned about segregation as a child. When I went to school and my own parents, we learned all about the different civil rights movements, because there was a struggle long before what happened in the 1950s and 60s.
I'll post what I have on the topic here soon, they are here to install a shower that does not fit >.<
