Arkansas Interposition, Proposed Amendment 47 (1956)
|Arkansas Amendment 47 (1956)|
Election Results via: Arkansas Secretary of State
The doctrine of interposition argues that the doctrine of state sovereignty allows states to "interpose" between a federal mandate and local authorities. The doctrine was put forward in southern states in the 1950s following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education, which required that school districts must provide racially integrated public education.
