REgarding textbooks: Title IX regulations specifically exclude any discussion
about them. The reason behind it was to avoid any accusation of censorship,
as I recall the Dept of Ed (then Office fo Education) reasoning behind that
clause. Sex equity professionals from the beginning, however, have encouraged
educators to review texts for bias and either supplement existing texts, or
use bias as one criterion when choosing texts to begin with. So
specifically, one cannot use biased textbooks as a reason to file a Title IX
complaint, in my opinion. MKeyes <>
