REMOTE Update on School Law 2021 - Title IX: Responding to Discrimination on the Basis of Sex in K-12 School  - AA #3752

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (20 USC 1681 et seq.) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity, including K-12 public schools.
