Title IX at 40: Working to Ensure Gender Equity in Education

In 1972, Congress passed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure equal opportunity in education for all students, from kindergarten through postgraduate school, regardless of sex. This landmark legislation states: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance (20 U.S.C. ยง1681). In honor of the 40th anniversary of the law's passage, the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education (NCWGE) published this comprehensive report to help give educators, parents, students, and lawmakers a better understanding of Title IX's impact and challenges that remain in many areas of education, including: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Career and Technical Education Bullying and Sexual Harassment Single-Sex Education Pregnant and Parenting Students Athletics View External Website
