Michigan Case About More than Seasons
The local press in Michigan reminds us that Communities for Equity was about more than just moving girls basketball to winter. The 6th Circuit decision rendered final by the Supreme Court's recent denial of cert confirmed the applicability of both Title IX' and the Equal Protection Clause to the Michigan High School Athletic Association. This mean MHSAA must provide "competition-worthy venues for both genders" including equal sites for basketball and softball -- equal media coverage too.
