An Inquiry into the Resilience of Title IX Reforms at the Local Level.
McDonald, Scott C.
An informal followup study was conducted to determine the permanence of gains in compliance with Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments in 23 California districts that had used compliance strategies developed by the California Coalition for Sex Equity in Education. Fourteen of the original districts' strategy implementation teams were contacted and two members of each team interviewed by phone. Analysis of the responses suggests that the implementation strategies may have had permanent results. Programmatic changes made by the districts tended to be maintained across all categories of Title IX concern, including the areas of equity in physical education, athletics, and academic courses for students and equity in personnel practices for teaching and administrative staffs. New initiatives tended to be taken most frequently in districts that had made appreciable gains in the original experimental period. (Author/PGD)
