ALERT: Title IX Changes In Wake Of Report On Campus Denial Of Due Process

USDOE

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is set to give a major speech Thursday on Obama-era directives on campus rape in the wake of a damning report spotlighting a lack of due process rights for accused students across university campuses.

DeVos is expected to make an announcement regarding Title IX, the 1972 campus gender equality law, at George Mason University in Virginia, BuzzFeed News reported.

The landmark decision by the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit found that Principal Lauren Fontana “stonewalled” the girl’s parents, refusing to discuss the bullying or address it in her special-education plan.

It never ceases to amaze me how many parents trust the most valuable humans in their lives to teachers, principals and college administrators.

I routinely hear these statements when I speak about travel safety;

“Oh Dale, the high school French teacher has a lot of experience traveling.” or “The College / University has a lot of experience with semesters abroad.”
