Summary

Discrimination against women in public employment may soon be coming to an end. Since 1972, when the Equal Opportunity Act was expanded to include public schools, the cause of women's rights has been gaining momentum. Today, although there are no quotas for women and men in education, many districts are under affirmative action mandates to move toward full equality of women with men. The recent cases cited here lead to the conclusion that any difference in treatment between male and female teachers will be regarded as discrimination and vigorously prosecuted by the courts. Such differences in the standards applied to the conduct of teachers outside the classroom have opened up other questions related to sexual behavior and sexual choice by educators. The old common-law rules permitted teachers to be held to high moral standards even in their out-of-school behavior on the theory that the teacher was a moral exemplar in the community. Recent decisions seem to indicate a departure from this rule, and its replacement by one holding that the only basis for dismissal of a teacher is conduct adversely affecting the capacity to perform his or her inschool duties.
