DeVos to overhaul ‘shameful’ Obama-era campus sexual-assault regulations

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced Thursday an initiative to overhaul the Obama administration’s campus sexual-assault guidelines, accusing the “shameful” system of failing both the accused and accuser by creating what have been decried as “kangaroo courts.”

She said she would issue a public notice aimed at reforming the regulatory framework created by the department’s Office for Civil Rights in its 2011 Title IX guidance, which compelled universities to take a harder line on campus sexual assault or face a federal civil rights investigation.

“This unraveling of justice is shameful, it is wholly un-American, and it is anathema to the system of self-governance to which our Founders pledged their lives over 240 years ago,” Ms. DeVos said in a speech at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. “There must be a better way forward.”

    This completely unravels Obama’s Great Leap Forward in feminine justice, because Trump is literally misogyny.

      Why are there campus police in the first place?
      And why do they have their own laws?

        Ostensibly to make the students even safer, but I think they are still operating under at least the same state law as everyone else.

    • Meanwhile we’re stuck with Justin.
