As many of you know, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear Davis v.
Monroe County Board of Education. THis case asks whether Title IX
requires schools to address and remedy student-to-student sexual
harassment of which they are aware. Last year, the Eleventh Circuit
ruled that Title IX imposes no duty whatsoever on schools -- no matter
how serious the harassment or how aware school officials were about it.

Groups are invited to sign on to friend of the court briefs in support
of this position.
