Yes, I'd like to know why they wouldn't apply to private schools, in
the sense that they make what goes on in private schools responsive to
the constitutional provision of equity. Can you clue me in to some
legal briefs I might look at that would explain what you do use with
private schools? I have some people who are interested in private
schools. And how would you litigate against the provision of
single-gender schools/classrooms? Thanks! Linda Purrington
