At the same time, though, we are seeing applications of various civil rights laws causing harm to others. While not applicable in single-sex classrooms, I know of other problems with Title IX that have occurred. Many colleges are dropping aports programs because of the way the law is being interpreted and applied. See: http://www.nationalreview.com/lopez/lopez052302.asp I think some flexibility and latitude for local schools in some areas is needed. I did not hear Kimball_Kinnison say "get rid of Title IX", or "gut civil rights laws" in his posts. Quite frankly, I think a local system has more of a clue what might work best and give students the best chance than some DC bureaucrat. Potential inequality is not enough of a reason for me. Last time I checked, we operated under the principle of innocent until proven guilty, not the other way around. EDIT: Any Amendment that weakens the stregnth of civil rights laws is inherently wrong. Surely you must recognize this. So is implemenation of those same civil rights in a manner to create quotas of any sort. As is the poor implementation of civil rights law.
