(The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has jurisdiction in Ohio, Tennessee and Michigan as well as Kentucky).
The ACLU in 2008 brought a lawsuit against Breckenridge County School District and the US Department of Education, arguing that sex-segregated classrooms deny boys and girls equal educational opportunities. The lawsuit claims the US Department of Education has violated the Constitution and the Equal Educational Opportunities Act by issuing regulations encouraging districts to segregate students by sex. The segregated classes at Breckenridge County Middle School use different textbooks and cover academic material at different rates, and students were assigned to them without input from their parents. The five families that are plaintiffs in the suit say that single sex classrooms deprive their children of the chance to socialize, compete and work together with members of the opposite sex.
