CONGRESS TO HOLD HEARINGS ON TITLE IX THIS WEEK
Published May 8, 1995
The House Subcommittee on Post-Secondary Education, Training and Lifelong Learning will hold a hearing Tuesday on the status of Title IX, a statute that prohibits any form of sexual discrimination in the administration of educational programs and activities at federally funded institutions. Witnesses at the Tuesday hearing supporting Title IX will include the Women's Sports Foundation, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association, Trial Lawyers for Public Justice, and the National Women's Law Center. Title IX opponents appearing at the hearing will include the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and the College Football Association (CFA). AFCA Exec Dir Grant Teaff: "This has nothing to do with wanting Title IX changed in any way. It's a matter of finding a away that we can create female opportunities while not destroying male opportunities" (J.C. Clemons, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/6).
