Title IX - 12/3/13

The Impact of Title IX

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
- Title IX, Educational Amendments of 1972

Since it's passage in 1972, Title IX has had a huge impact on high school and college athletics. It's controversial, though. Some say it has done enormous good for both women's and men's athletics, while others say it has gone too far to try to create a level playing field. Check out these videos on YouTube, read the article and answer the journal question in class on Tuesday, and decide for yourself.
