Sex Bias in Secondary Schools: The Impact of Title IX.
Fishel, Andrew; Pottker, Janice
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the first comprehensive anti-sex discrimination law that covers students. Although most of the attention given to the law since its passage has focused on its impact on colleges, Title IX will have the greatest impact on the elementary and secondary levels of education. All school districts in the country receiving federal funds will be required to abide by these regulations in order to continue receiving funds. This legislation does not prohibit different entrance requirements for boys and girls to schools for the academically or artistically talented, nor does it prohibit single-sex schools, except for vocational schools. However, all other aspects of public school policy will, in one way or another, be affected by Title IX. Although the implementing regulations of Title IX have not been finalized, from the proposed regulations released in June 1974, it is possible to determine the type of school policies that will require changes. This report describes some of those policies. (Author/JF)
