Combating Discrimination in the Schools: Legal Remedies and Guidelines.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
This booklet outlines the Federal laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination in educational institutions and programs. It is not a comprehensive listing of all antidiscrimination laws, but rather a guide to laws and regulations that may be used for individual and group action. The primary emphasis in this pamphlet is on the protection of individual rights. Each of the brief chapters outlines one major antidiscrimination law or regulation, specifying what it prohibits, who enforces it, and how complaints should be made. The laws examined are: Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Executive Order 11246, Equal Pay Act of 1963, Title VII and Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The second part of each chapter notes which specific kinds of inequities the law or regulation has proved most useful in remedying and offers suggestions for increasing the strength of your complaint should you decide to file one. In the appendixes are a series of questions to help you determine the degree of racial and sexual discrimination in your school and a listing of publications and organizations which may be helpful in combating that discrimination.
