All public schools and universities provide a sports or athletic education for their students.
Sports programs vary from school to school. However, one thing is certain, when a student intends to participate in their school’s sports program; they may not be denied participation because of their sex or gender. If this happens they are victims of sexual discrimination.
By federal law, all schools are required to provide sports programs for both males and females.
Today, however there are many students who may struggle with their sexual identity or orientation. Regardless of their struggles or orientation, they have a legal and civil to play sports offered by their school.
If you believe that your child has been discriminated against in the area of sports due to their sexual orientation or gender then you should contact a lawyer. If your lawyer believes that they have been discriminated against, he or she will devise a course of action.
If a lawyer agrees to represent your child, he or she will most likely handle everything. This means that the lawyer will handle any letters or phone calls that need to be placed, relieving you of frustration and worry.
Sometimes, all it takes is a letter from a lawyer to change the situation.
