Title IX in Illinois: A Matter of Principal.
Smith, Ann; Boykin, Arsene
Male Illinois high school principals agree that Title IX has little effect on most nonacademic areas but a fairly substantial effect on the provision of sex equity in athletics, while female principals find Title IX more effective in all areas than do males. This information came from responses to a 13-item Likert-type questionnaire sent to 310 Illinois high school principals and answered by 201 men and 6 women. Eight items formed a scale of information on athletics and five items provided a scale for other nonacademic characteristics of the school program. Scores on both scales distributed normally. When grouped by sex, principals showed different attitudes toward the effects of Title IX, but grouping the principals by such demographic variables as age, training, experience, type of district, or size of setting disclosed no significant variations in responses.
