Help Protecting Your Children’s Rights At School Under Title IX

A college student who has suffered discrimination due to their sex may have a claim for damages under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, commonly known as Title IX. This law is powerful but also very complex. Our experienced and committed attorneys at Bartell, Georgalas & Juarez, L.P.A. Co., help families across the country dealing with the effects of a student being deprived of educational opportunities because of their sex. Contact us if you or your child has been the victim of this type of illegal discrimination.

Title IX And Students In Cincinnati

Title IX forbids sex-based discrimination in any federally-funded program, which applies to many colleges and universities, as well as high schools and even elementary schools. Examples of Title IX violations include:

  • Rejecting a disproportionate number of female students for competitive STEM (science, technology, education and math) programs
  • Funding male sports teams and programs more than female ones
  • Discriminating against pregnant students
  • Sexual harassment and sexual assault, or failure to protect against or punish them

We understand how unfair this discrimination is and the damage it can do to a student’s education. Fortunately, under Title IX, you have the right to seek financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. You can also seek injunctive relief, which means a legal order compelling the school to change a discriminatory policy or practice. Not only can you use Title IX to push for remedies for the discrimination you have suffered, but you can also help stop sex-based discrimination from happening to anyone else at that institution. We will work closely with you to use your rights under Title IX to the fullest extent possible.
