That means guidance on how to comply with Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs and activities that receive federal funding. “No student should ever have to go through the experience of feeling unwelcome at school or on a college campus. We must ensure that our young people know that whoever they are or wherever they come from, they have the opportunity to get a great education in an environment free from discrimination, harassment and violence,” Education Secretary John B. King said in a statement.
