45 YEARS After Title IX, America’s Boys Need Equal Protection
Why isn’t Title IX being deployed to correct the educational disparity facing young men? In America’s high schools, girls outnumber boys in almost all extracurricular activities except sports. Currently, there are over 1 million more boys playing scholastic sports than girls. Thanks to terrible legal precedents set by politically motivated judges, schools must rely on a regulatory standard that is a gender quota to prove Title IX compliance if they want to prevail against expensive litigation. The result of this twisted interpretation of Title IX is that high school administrators will be forced to deny many male students the educational benefits of participation in sports in order to enforce an arbitrary gender balance in their athletic programs.
