New California Law Helps Level the Playing Field for Girls in Sports
The law signed this week requires California public primary and secondary schools offering competitive sports to report on the number of students playing sports by gender. This is one of the Title IX compliance indicators that was checked when Branch members used the AAUW “Know The Score” checklist for local high schools. Now the data will be public and readily accessible so that female students and their teachers, coaches and families will be able to assess and rectify inequalities.
