In the case of Grove City vs. Bell, Title IX was proved to affect not only colleges and universities but private schools as well. Title IX states that no person shall be excluded from being a part of any educational program according to the sex of the person. Before this court case, Title IX only referred to colleges and universities that receive federal funds. After the court case, private schools that refused direct funding were able to receive federally funded scholarships. Even though Grove City College won the court case, the Congress later on passed a law that added on to the federal aid the college had to provide. Overall, the court case affected Grove City drastically and still continues to affect the school today.
Title IX was passed on June 23, 1972 by President Richard Nixon. Title IX is a vital part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and also has to do somewhat with the fourteenth amendment. Title IX is, “a federal law prohibiting sexual discrimination in any federally funded institution, stating that “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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” (The Oyez Project) Title IX also has to do a great deal with equality between sexes and the benefits they receive. “Regulations within Title IX prohibit discrimination based on gender, marital, or parental status in the following areas: admissions, financial aid, health and insurance benefits, career guidance and counseling services, housing facilities, courses and other educational activities, and scholastic, intercollegiate, club, or intramural athletics. With the passage of Title IX, Congress created statutory protection for individuals employed by educational institutions and participating in the proliferation of educational opportunities for underrepresented student populations.” (The Oyez Project)...
