Someone asked if Title IX applied to private schools--and if not, how
could one achieve equity in such schools. No, it doesn't apply unless
theprivate school receives any federal funding at all, and this can mean
any program that is run out of the school, using school facilities,
including playing fields, and any facilities or equipment used by any
such program. However, there is hope for private school families: It is
possible to file a lawsuit against the school for not providing
educational equity under the Due Process clause of the Fourteeht
Amendment, and it is also possible to sue a private school for fraud and
breach of contract if you were given to understand that educational
equity would be provided. Linda Purrington <lpurring@earthlink.net>
