ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the regulations released by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) to increase the flexibility of the Title IX Education Amendments of 1972, by allowing sex-segregated schools and classrooms throughout the U.S. The regulation permits public schools to establish voluntary single sex classes or schools if they offer substantially equal co-educational programs. The National Organization for Women (NOW) opposes the regulations.
