CONGRESS TO HOLD HEARINGS ON TITLE IX THIS WEEK

     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).
