Sex Equity in Public Education. Issuegram 35.
Lines, Patricia M.; And Others
Sex discrimination in American education remains a persistent problem that requires concerted attention from many different perspectives. This Issuegram focuses on the legal mandates requiring sex equity in public schools. A brief background indicates a history of sex discrimination in education dating back to 1783. Several important weapons for ending sex discrimination are discussed, including federal constitutional requirements, state equal rights amendments, Title IX, and equal employment opportunity laws including Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Some results of litigation under these laws are briefly discussed, and implications for state and federal policymakers are highlighted. (JAC)
