Louisville-area schools will end a decades-long policy that 7% to 22% of most school's teachers be black, originally part of the district's desegregation plan, as the result of a settlement in a federal lawsuit. Elementary teacher Lorraine Hill sued the district in September 2007, saying the policy prevented her from transferring or even interviewing for jobs in other elementary schools because they reportedly already had too many black teachers under the policy.
