Federal complaint against new girls-only STEM school says it’s unfair to boys

Article here. Excerpt:

'Federal Department of Education sex discrimination investigations have been opened on Fayette County Schools’ new all-girls elementary STEM program and four female-only STEM programs at the University of Kentucky following complaints from a Michigan professor.

Officials in the Department’s Office of Civil Rights confirmed in letters to professor Mark Perry dated Friday and April 30 that the office was investigating his complaints about the elementary school set to open in the fall and about the UK programs. Determinations have not been made on the merits of the complaints, the letters said.

Title IX is a federal law that says “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”'
