President Barack Obama’s Department of Education — which manifestly is not vested with judicial powers — has taken to applying article wherein a more complete (and less editorialized) version of events was described. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights spent nearly two years investigating Palatine-based Township High School District 211 and found “a preponderance of evidence” that school officials did not comply with Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.
You’re self conscious and worried about fitting in.District and federal officials negotiated for months, and a solution appeared imminent as recently as last week, when the district put up privacy curtains in the locker room.But talks stalled after school officials said the student would be required to use the private area, as opposed to offering her a choice to use it.The district could lose some or all of its Title IX funding. The principal objective of Title IX is to avoid the use of federal money to support sex discrimination in education programs and to provide individual citizens effective protection against those practices.On June 23, 1972, the President signed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U. Title IX applies, with a few specific exceptions, to all aspects of federally funded education programs or activities.
