U.S. Department of Education investigations push schools to turn a blind eye to behavior that rises to criminality, in order to lower suspensions, expulsions, and juvenile arrests.
If this Obama administration rule went into effect, its biggest victims would likely be those who don’t need any more disadvantages: minority special-needs kids.
California Gov. Jerry Brown is the first supporter of Obama-era guidance to urge caution and note the racial disparity in campus tribunals.
It would be more encouraging if more schools changed their policies to protect the rights of accused students and stopped the witch hunt mentality raging on campus.
None of these smeared groups think rape is acceptable. They simply want protections for accused students, and for the hysteria surrounding the issue to stop.
This week, a U.S. Education Department official said the Trump administration would dial down its treatment of accusations that schools do not properly address sexual assault complaints.
The Trump administration can better its odds of ending the monopolies at the root of widespread public dissatisfaction with schools and their indoctrination of American kids.
No stranger to a softball, former Vice President Joe Biden recently told Teen Vogue that Education ‘Secretary DeVos is going to really dumb down Title IX enforcement.’
For the first time since his election, President Trump has reiterated his opposition to Common Core. And his education secretary is starting to sound promising notes.
Wednesday night the Trump administration reversed the one-size-fits-all approach the Obama administration took last year on student privacy in sex-segregated facilities.
Now that Betsy DeVos has been confirmed, it’s time to offer her realistic advice that does some justice to the legitimate concerns about her nomination on both sides.
Let’s read Donald Trump’s reiterated promise to repeal Common Core, not in the ruling class’s legalistic hyperliteralism, but on Trump terms, and on the American public’s terms.
Leftist control over education, from preschool through college, is a prime contributor to leading Republicans’ inability to think through education policy.
Her opponents fight the person, but Betsy DeVos’s platform is sound education reform.
Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, answered an array of preposterous questions from a bunch of unserious people. It’s a reminder that politics is often tragedy.
Given all the DeVos money floating around Washington, how likely are Republicans to ask some fair but critical questions about a woman who would oversee some $70 billion annually and 5,000 public employees?
No objective data finds that a single major federal program has had any effect on any of its targeted outcomes. This ought to give Betsy DeVos some humility about her position.
School choice increases parental involvement and student achievement. Betsy DeVos could use her bully pulpit as education secretary to drastically deregulate federal education policies.
Former DC schools chancellor Michelle Rhee is definitely a celebrity. But that’s about the only way in which she would fit with a Donald Trump administration as education secretary.
The Left thinks it’s progress to pretend that human beings won’t do bad things simply because we don’t want them to. Observant people call that pride.
