This class is the best class I've taken yet. It's logical, pertinent, and logical. Gender Issues in Teaching Math and Science with Dr. Spears. Good. I learnt about Title IX tonight.
Prohibition against discrimination; exceptions. 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, except that:
Title IX's whole purpose is to create equal oppotunities for men and women. Any school that recieves federal money has to follow Title IX. It goes for admissions, scholarships, organizations, athletics, and some others. Athletics is where it seems to be the biggest. Women need to have equal opportunities to compete. But, in contact sports (like football, wrestling, basketball, hockey...) women do not have to be allowed to participate. Instead, an alternative must be offered. So any school that allows coed contact sport teams does so voluntarily.
But class is fun, interesting and I'm glad it's at 7:05 and not 4:30. It's hard to make it to 4:30 classes from JC.
