Title IX complaint filed over Minnesota dance team policy

Lawyers working on behalf of a Superior High School student have requested a federal investigation into whether the Minnesota State High School League's girls-only policy for dance teams violates Title IX.

Attorneys with Pacific Legal Foundation, a nonprofit representing Superior High School sophomore Kaiden Johnson, filed a Title IX complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights on Tuesday. The complaint alleges that the MSHSL's dance team policy violates Title IX by classifying students by gender without adequate justification, failing to provide an equal coeducational alternative and failing to ensure that the program doesn't rely on "overly broad generalizations" about the talents, capabilities and preferences of either gender.
