US: DeVos Is Planning to Rollback Guidelines That Protect Students From Sexual Assault (Commentary)
Education Post – January 24, 2019
National surveys show that most students will experience some form of sexual harassment during their elementary and secondary school years-yet most K-12 schools are not well-prepared to respond appropriately when they learn that a student has sexually harassed or assaulted a peer, or that a teacher sexually abused a student. The Department of Education’s proposed changes to Title IX regulations will only make the problem worse, increasing barriers for students and families reporting sexual harassment and confuse school officials who already lack clear guidance on how to respond appropriately.
