Re 4: Key points on Title IX

Key points for a bulletin board:

1. Title IX is a law that covers academic and social equity, as well as
athletic equity, in school as well as in college, for teachers as well
as students.

2. About 90 percent of schools and colleges still need to achieve
compliance with Title IX.

3. Because Title IX has never been enforced by the Office for Civil
Rights, it is important that the right of private citizens to sue under
Title IX for damages be maintained and extended.
