Athletic Disclosure Bill Introduced to Enforce Equality in Schools

Sen. Mary Jo White introduced The Pennsylvania Equity in Interscholastic Athletics Disclosure Act which would force schools to publicly report the gender, race and ethnicity of all 7th to 12th grade players and the amounts athletic directors spend for uniforms, equipment and coaching.

Its designed to make sure schools are complying with Title 9.

They are modeled after federal requirements for the NCAA.

"We spend a lot of money in our schools on sports and a lot of time. And if we think its important then it should be important for girls as well as boys,'' she said.
