A History of Sex Discrimination in High School Athletics--School Law and Athletic Administration.
Whiteside, Patricia W.
The passage of education legislation extending equal rights to women precipitated a series of court cases testing the rights of women to participate in high school athletic programs. These court decisions have resulted in fundamental changes in the operation, organization, and administration of athletic programs within many school districts. A history of major court decisions concerning sex discrimination in high school athletics is given. Arguments, both pro and con, used in court cases involving mixed competition are discussed in the summary. (JN)
