Title IX and the Achievement of Equal Educational Opportunity: A Legal Handbook.
Guerrier, Charles E.
Designed to provide an introduction to major issues, controversies, and case law related to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, this handbook is intended to promote more informed interaction between administrators and the attorneys who represent and advise them regarding sex discrimination issues. Following a brief explanation of the need for Title IX in section I, section II discusses the theory and reality of permissible and impermissible discrimination and offers a capsule history of judicial opinions in cases involving sex-based distinctions. In section III, the author discusses the statute's enactment and amendment processes and provides a section-by-section analysis. Beginning with an exposition of the implementing regulation's adoption process, authoritativeness, scope, and interpretation, section IV offers a detailed analysis that constitutes the bulk of the document. In addition to its introductory section, this analysis contains sections on (1) coverage; (2) prohibitions of discrimination on the basis of sex in admission and recruitment, education programs and activities, and employment in education programs and activities; and (3) interim procedures. Appendix A provides a copy of the Title IX implementing regulation republished in 1980 as C.F.R. Part 106. Appendix B summarizes the United States system of legal references and citations. (JBM)
