Opposing View The first side or viewpoint that is held on the Title IX is that the Title IX as an Educational Amendment Act to champion the equality of involvement in educational programs in all government funded educational institutions came with more cons than pros. In effective, this school of thought looks at the Title IX as a demerit to the educational system. The major argument held by analysts in this school of thought is that the Act came as a great disservice to the male population in educational program involvement; especially in the field of sports. In a recent research for instance, it was established that over 34% of male students lost their places in educational sports projects in various schools across the country within the first decade of implementation of the Title IX (Shiels, 2009). What this means to the educational system is that the Act came in as a way of robbing Peter to pay Paul. This is to mean that the Act came in to satisfy one gender by dissatisfying the other sex. What debaters in this school of thought really suggest is for the Act to have come as a provision that could maintain the quota of males in various educational policies, whiles paving way for as many females who wanted to be included to be included in the educational provisions. In effect, the Title IX is criticized for not expanding the scope of involvement in reality but substituting others for the inclusion of others (Shiels, 2009). Again, they contend that if the Act really had an agenda of ensuring
expansion, what would have been done would have been an increase in the financial quota given to schools for educational policies such as sports. But since the financial quota was maintained and yet there was expected to be equal provisions for...

This is because debaters in this school of thought hold the view that the Title IX really came as an Act that was going to open up the educational system to an era of fairness and open participation. In effect, they hold the view that many talents, which were vested in females were left to go untapped before the Act was pass because there was no enforcing instrument to ensure that attention was given to females.
The Title IX remains an instrument that should continue to be debated till an amendment would ensure that the provisions it puts forth fits all sides of the coin. In essence, there cannot be any emphatic position taken as to whether the Title IX is a pro or a con to the educational system. However, it is important to consider some of the key suggestions and recommendations that are embedded in both sides of the debate.Indeed, it is out of such a practice of meeting the demands and recommendations from both sides of the divide that government can be assured that the larger interest of the population would be met, because after all, both those who speak for and against the Title IX are citizens who are concerned about the welfare of the country’s educational system.
