Students often hold a misconception or are completely uninformed as to what is Title IX. Currently, under Title IX, all students have the right to receive an education in an environment free from sex discrimination. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the institution to take the necessary measures to comply with any student who chooses to file a report of gender discrimination. Title IX was implemented as a memorandum to promote gender equality, but over the years it has developed into not only a law but also an important piece of educational rights and standards. It is important to assess gender discrimination in relation to Title IX, because equality is the basis for this law.
