ABSTRACT
Public schools once blocked from teaching boys and girls separately would find it easier to embrace single-sex classes and schools under new federal regulations issued last week. The long-awaited regulations from the U.S. Department of Education would relax a previously strict interpretation of the main federal law guaranteeing sex equity in education. The proposed regulations, which still await a 45-day comment period, would amend Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination in education programs that receive federal funds.
