The Title IX Blog looks at implications of Cal cutting 5-7 sports

+

The San Francisco Chronicle has reported that Cal-Berkeley is looking at cutting 5-7 sports. The Title IX blog took a look at the matter and had some less than optimistic insight: "Of course, Title IX will be considered as well, as the article notes towards the end. My initial, quick glance at the EADA data told me that Cal does not use proportionality to demonstrate compliance with accommodation of interests and abilities. That I could discern this from such a quick glance is not good. I don't know if Cal is adhering to prong two or three at this point, but when/if they cut sports, proportionality will be their only option."
