Several educational issues that are currently in the spotlight are discussed in this publication. They include: school desegregation, pregnant girls, teenage mothers, discipline, children with special needs, sex discrimination and Title IX, Title I -- Compensatory Education, privacy and the right to records, and racism and sexism in text materials. Background information for each problem discussed is included; for instance, a desegregation update includes a discussion on the courts and metropolitan desegregation, including the Boston experience. Sex discrimination and Title IX focuses on the coverage provided by the legislation and addresses issues such as admissions, employment, athletics, physical education classes, financial aid, vocational education and counseling. Compensatory education provides information on how the program works, funds distribution, and parent advisory councils. The section on privacy and the rights to records addresses issues such as the law and its requirements, its implementation, and the importance of the Buckley amendment. Each section also contains information on congressional action and relevant court decisions, and on laws and regulations. Specific suggestions for citizen involvement are also offered. (Author/AM)
