This document is one of a two-part set of publications. Both deal with equal education and provide a concise overview of Title IX and gender equity issues in education and steps to take to ensure nondiscrimination and equal education opportunity for all. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the major federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance. The regulation for Title IX, promulgated in 1975, falls into six categories: general matters related to discrimination on the basis of sex, coverage, admissions, treatment of students once they are admitted, employment, and procedures. With certain exceptions listed in Subpart B of the regulation, the law bars sex discrimination in any academic, extracurricular, research, occupational training, or other educational program (preschool to postgraduate) operated by an organization or agency that receives or benefits from federal aid. The purpose of this annotated summary is to alert educators to Title IX's requirements and to the major changes that have occurred since 1980. The annotations focus only on Title IX issues and are intended to clarify interpretation and application, and explain recent changes that have taken place. A discussion of major sex equity issues facing schools today may be found in the companion document "Beyond Title IX: Gender Equity Issues in Schools." (DK)
