Russo, Charles J.; Thro, William E. – School Business Affairs, 2009
The Supreme Court's recent decision in "Fitzgerald v. Barnstable School Committee" (2009) expands the opportunities for students and their parents to sue school boards for alleged sex discrimination.

Haft, William – National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NJ1), 2009

Staurowsky, Ellen J. – New Directions for Community Colleges, 2009
Despite the role that female athletes at the community college level played, it is interesting to note that there is little in the way of a comprehensive history of women's college sports at two-year institutions.

Essex, Nathan L. – ERS Spectrum, 2009
Zero tolerance policy. Most school districts have a zero tolerance policy in place for drug use, weapons on campus, sexual harassment, or all of the above.

Billger, Sherrilyn M. – Economics of Education Review, 2009
A change to Title IX has spurred new single-sex public schooling in the US. Until recently, nearly all gender-segregated schools were private, and comprehensive data for public school comparisons are not yet available.
