It's Your Right!
Kaser, Joyce
This pamphlet notes that legal rights are protected by Title IX and sets forth a student's sex equity bill of rights. It states that educational rights are usually supported by board of education policy or a school's educational philosophy. The 10 statements in the student's sex equity bill of rights explain a student's legal and educational rights on the basis of sex. These 10 categories of students' rights in the area of sex equity are discussed: (1) the right to enroll in any course or program; (2) the right to be treated equitably in terms of course requirements; (3) the right to learn about the contributions that people of each sex have made; (4) the right to hear language that is nonsexist; (5) the right to ask questions regardless of sex; (6) the legal right to be disciplined according to the nature of an offense rather than on the basis of sex; (7) the right to receive both praise for accomplishments and constructive criticism for improving work without regard to sex; (8) the right to pursue studies free of sexual harassment from other students or faculty; (9) the right to be considered for any work-study program or co-op job without regard to sex; and (10) the right to know what students' rights are. Six steps for students to follow if they run into a problem with sex equity rights in schools are presented. (ABL)
