Advocacy Group Charges 25 Colleges with Violating Title IX in Athletics.
Naughton, Jim
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n40 pA39-A40 Jun 13 1997
The National Women's Law Center alleges that 25 colleges and universities are violating federal anti-discrimination law (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972) by giving female athletes a disproportionately small amount of sports-related financial aid. In 1995-96, 27 institutions achieved "substantial proportionality" in financial aid. Two separate tests are used to determine scholarship parity. (MSE)
