Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 has become synonymous with expanding the athletic opportunities for females. Often misunderstood by educational administrators and the general public, this study attempts to review and analyze the historical development of Title IX with specific attention given to athletics at the collegiate and scholastic levels. Throughout this study, the historical and current status of the Title IX is evaluated as well as a thorough comparison between the law’s current administration with the historical evidence of Title IX’s legislative intent. With the most recent actions involving Title IX in March of 2005, the law’s recent publicity demonstrates the ever increasing importance of understanding the legality of various actions by educational institutions as well as high school athletic associations.
