Education, equality and title ix

THIS IS TWO ASSIGNMENTS….

 

1.)

The basis of our discussion is based on a simple argument:

  1. Education is an effective tool in our efforts to build a more equitable society.
  2. Therefore, equal educational opportunities must be available to all citizens.

 “How do we remedy the historic mistreatment of deserving black Americans without punishing deserving white Americans today?”

Our efforts to address the problems of racial inequality have been centered in on one of our most important social institutions – education. While the schools of this country are a local place to focus these efforts, can we fix one problem without creating another?

As always, we want more than your opinions. This question overlaps several chapters of our text, including an examination of education, race, and inequality. As such, we may see references to several chapters. We should also see evidence of additional research, properly cited, in support of positions offered in our responses.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.

 

2.)

One of the better-known impacts of Title IX relates to gender equity in athletics. While only 1 in 27 girls participated in high school sports before the passage of Title IX the number has increased to almost 1 in 2 girls in high school athletic programs since.

After viewing the required resources for this discussion, please address each of the following questions:

  1. In your informed opinion, was Title IX a logical policy response to the problem of gender inequality?
  2. Did Title IX accomplish the intended goals for all women?
  3. Did Title IX impact your life in any way?
  4. What differences do you think there are between the way girls and young women view sports today compared to 40 years ago? In effect, has participation in sports changed women and their role in society?
  5. Other than Title IX, have other social changes have contributed to changes in perception? Please provide examples.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
