Thanks to all--Linda, Leslie, Peggy--for this stimulating discussion. I
am also deeply concerned about what is happening under the Bush
administration. While I support wholeheartedly Susan's (Susan Susan
McKevitt, Administrator, NH Dept. of Education ) interest in expanding
Title IX to include curriculum, my fear is that all efforts will need to be
focused on maintaining Title IX as it now exists...

Susan statement:
Hi Leslie,
Thanks for your opening statement. In reading it I saw one area where I
think some clarification is needed. You state that Title IX "addresses all
aspects of education", however, Title IX specifically excludes curriculum
from its authority, something I would hope would be included if Title IX
ever were to be re-assessed in the positive. I add that last comment, for I
know with Title IX being looked at, it is not with the intent of expanding
the coverage, but rather to limit it.
Thanks again,

Susan McKevitt, Administrator
