ABSTRACT
The article focuses on compensatory damages related to Title IX, a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in education in the U.S. The U.S. Supreme Court has accepted to decide whether individuals can look for compensation or remuneration under Title IX. The further issue is whether remedies under Title IX include compensatory damages to individual victims of sex bias, or are limited to such penalties as ordering the faulted institution to discontinue its biased activity or canceling the school's federal funding. School-law experts said that if such a decision is taken, it could affect the interpretation and explanation of Title IX.
