ABSTRACT
The article reports that Francis L. Young, a federal administrative law judge, ruled that the Pickens County School District in South Carolina can continue to offer both single-sex and coeducational physical-education classes because the said programs do not receive federal funds. Young claimed that the U.S. Education Department has no authority to apply the federal law barring sex discrimination in education to the school district.
