Sex Discrimination Regulations. Hearings Before the Subcommittee on Postsecondary Education of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, Ninety-Fourth Congress, First Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
This document contains hearings on the regulations issued by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare for the implementation of Title IX of Public Law 92-318. The main focus of Title IX is the ban on sex discrimination in any educational program or activity assisted by the federal government. The regulations will be reviewed solely to see if they are consistent with the law and with the intent of the Congress in enacting the law and to decide if the regulation writers have read and understood it the way the lawmakers intended it to be read and understood. Discussed is section 431(d) of the General Education Provisions Act, which sets forth the authority for the conduct of these hearings, and which says that the bureaucracy shall be held accountable and that its regulations will be scrutinized very carefully to see if they are consistent with the law.
