The Biden administration has introduced a policy that requires schools to adopt inclusive perspectives on gender and sexuality, with non-compliance potentially resulting in the loss of federal funding for subsidized school meals. This initiative, viewed as a crucial step forward, may establish a precedent for linking educational funding to support for wider progressive values.
In May 2022, a problem arose when the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) declared intentions to redefine Title IX, a legislation aimed at tackling discrimination in education. The USDA expanded its ban on discrimination based on sex to include sexual orientation and gender identity, affecting organizations that receive funds and requiring them to make changes to their policies and signs.
Legal experts view this as a significant departure from the traditional interpretation of Title IX. Schools benefiting from federal aid like Pell grants, FAFSA, or subsidized lunches may now need to adhere to these expanded rules to maintain their funding.
Sarah Perry, a specialist at the Heritage Foundation, emphasized the significance of this alteration, accentuating that it expands the range of Title IX to include sexual orientation and gender identity– a significant departure from its original purpose that dates back to the women’s liberation movement in 1972.
Despite differing opinions on the matter, schools face the challenge of navigating these intricate gender and sexuality issues due to this mandated compliance with the new interpretation of Title IX. The reinterpretation represents a notable departure from the historical understanding of the law and its evolution in the context of anti-discrimination efforts.
