Title IX. Physical Educators for Equity. Module 4.
This module presents information on the provisions of Public Law 92 318 (Title IX) that affect the teaching of secondary school physical education. Title IX ensures equal educational opportunities for both sexes in any federally assisted educational program. It is designed to enable teachers to identify educational practices inconsistent with the law and to select alternatives for meeting Title IX requirements for these inconsistent situations. Suggestions are also made for methods of initiating enforcement procedures required when violations of Title IX are detected. In this module, five Title IX provisions that have an impact on physical education programs are cited: comparable facilities; access to course offerings; ability groups; grouping for body-contact activities; and evaluation of students. Interpretation exercises are offered covering each of these five provisions. Examples are also presented of five situations in physical education programs that may or may not be in compliance with the law. A discussion is presented on each case, and ways in which the situation may be rectified if it is not in compliance are pointed out. A summary is offered of basic principles interpolated from Title IX regulations that can be applied to physical education programs. A sequence of steps that may be taken to correct situations which are not in compliance with Title IX is suggested. A model letter for filing a complaint under Title IX is appended. (JD)
