The Trump Administration Reverses Obama-Era Policy About Sexual Assault On College Campuses

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos today announced that the federal government will be stepping back from Obama-era regulations on how colleges and universities should handle sexual assalt. Paul Reville, professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and head of their Education Redesign Lab, acknowledged some criticism of university-led investigations. But he worries the administration will go too far when it rewrites the guidelines, allowing colleges to sweep sexual assault allegations under the rug.
