ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues about the use of sexist texts in schoolbooks that teach children reading, writing and the roles they will later play as adult men and women in the U.S. It mentions that school boards using sexist texts may be sued under Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, a law that prohibits sex discrimination in federally funded educational program, since the government helps finance such books. It notes that the Committee to Study Sex Discrimination in the Kalamazoo Public Schools in Michigan filed a complaint with the Department of Health, Education and Welfare alleging that 80% of the leading characters in a book read by elementary school students are boys or men.
