Title IX extended to associations -Reply

I've been waiting for this body of law to develop. It's also going to come
up in the area of disability, where NCAA rules create siginificant barriers
to athletic participation by athletes who have LDs and who have been
accomodated - NCAA rules inherently question the legitimacy of their
academic achievement and abilities if their disabilities are accommodated
(e.g., alternative asessment).

Most colleges and universities essentialy turn over teir policy making in
some areas to the NCAA. It really has become a quasi-gevernmental
body in that it develops rules that public colleges and universities must
obey if their athletic programs are to survive, and those same rues
govern the actions of private colleges and unviersities that receive
federal funding.
