Implementing Title IX: Concerns of Undergraduate Physical Education Majors.
Bain, Linda L.
A survey of an equal number of male and female students in the University of Houston's secondary school physical education course articulates prospective teacher concerns regarding the implementation of the nondiscriminatory principles set forth in the Title IX ruling. In general, male students evidence greater overall concern about the ruling's effects than do females. The historic exclusion of women from sports programs has resulted in a situation wherein male coaches often suffer from a lack of trust in their female colleagues. Also, male sports personnel may be unable to effectively operate a physical education class consisting of several different skill and strength levels, as would be the case in coeducational gym classes. Preservice teacher curriculum must be developed that speaks to these needs, and the development of girls' sports potential must be more emphatically stressed. Neither male nor female subjects fear that the acceleration of women's involvement in sports would seriously threaten sex role identification processes. (LH)
