The Unenforced Law: Title IX Activity by Federal Agencies other than HEW. Report.
Balles, Nancy J.
The purposes of this report are to identify which federal agencies other than the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare have educational programs covered by Title IX; to survey those agencies to determine if they are enforcing Title IX by means of regulations, orders, or termination of funding; to identify problems of intragovernmental coordination for uniform enforcement. This survey is only preliminary and places emphasis on Title IX's coverage of services or benefits to program participants rather than on coverage of employment. The survey resulted in three major findings. First, of the agencies having education/training programs subject only to Title IX, none has published Title IX regulations although the law is more than five years old. Second, of the agencies with double coverage of their programs, most were unaware of the applicability of Title IX or of the need for intragovernmental coordination of standards and enforcements. Third, there is no lead agency designated by executive order to coordinate enforcement of Title IX and other sex discrimination provisions. (Author/IRT)
