Doe v. Vermilion Parish School Board
. The ACLU Women's Rights Project, in conjunction with the ACLU of Louisiana, settles a case challenging sex segregation of a public middle school in Kaplan, Louisiana after the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issues a favorable ruling. The case, filed on behalf of two students who were placed into all-girls classes without parental consent at the outset of the 2009-10 school year, alleged that the program was based on flawed data, relied heavily on gender stereotypes and had no positive effect on academic performance. As a part of the settlement, Vermilion Parish School Board agrees to cease all sex-segregated classes through at least the 2016-17 school year.
