Title IX: Goal Outcomes

This graph shows the increase in both male and female athletic participation in high school sports over the years.  The graph after it shows the increase in college participation.  My first questions looking at the two lines in both graphs is why there is the persistent gender gap. My second question is should the goal be to close that gap? Should high schools and colleges aim to have equal numbers of boys and girls, men and women, playing sports.  Note that that goal would go far beyond the standard for compliance with Title IX.  For more data go to this article on ESPN-W.
