The Effect of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 on the Administration of Girls' Competitive Athletic Programs in Selected Public High Schools of Texas.
To collect data for this study, a total of 279 questionnaires were mailed to school superintendents selected from a stratified random sample of public school districts in Texas. A total of 238, or 86 percent, of the questionnaires was returned. The study was designed (1) to describe some of the factors that directly affect the administration of girls' competitive athletic programs in each of the five interscholastic league classifications of Texas public high schools; (2) to determine the status of girls' athletics prior to passage of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the interim from 1972 to 1975, and since implementation of Title IX regulations on July 21, 1975; and (3) to describe the effect of Title IX on the administration of girls' competitive athletic programs. The study also investigated administrative considerations in providing female students the opportunity to participate in athletics; actions taken by school officials to provide facilities, finances, staff, activity periods, and supervision of programs; administrative planning to implement Title IX guidelines; extent of compliance in the school districts; and major administrative problems in implementing Title IX regulations in the public high schools of Texas.
