Bipartisan group calls for Education Dept. reform regarding campus sexual assault

Department of Education regulations forcing colleges and universities to create pseudo-court systems to handle campus sexual assault are interfering with schools' core mission to educate, according to a bipartisan report from a task force for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

The report was designed to offer solutions for easing regulatory burdens on colleges, which have exploded in recent years.

“Over time, oversight of higher education by the Department of Education has expanded and evolved in ways that undermine the ability of colleges and universities to serve students and accomplish their missions,” the report said. “The compliance problem is exacerbated by the sheer volume of mandates — approximately 2,000 pages of text — and the reality that the Department of Education issues official guidance to amend or clarify its rules at a rate of more than one document per work day.”

This onslaught of regulation has made it difficult and costly for colleges to comply. One example given was the evolving narrative of Title IX, originally enacted 40 years ago to ensure women were treated equally on campus.

Balance of article follows at link: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/bipartisan-group-calls-for-education-dept.-reform-regarding-campus-sexual-assault/article/2560493

Looks like people are starting to realize that the current approach to allegations of sexual assault is inappropriate and will lead to long term problems and could impose serious financial costs to universities that expel students without following due process of law.

1. get rid of secret society groups and fraternities...Animal House culture is passe' and bullying

Make hazing illegal too.

And 3 of the 4 years on campus, at least, almost all are under age.

So why is drinking allowed when it is illegal?

Not to be a party pooper, but school is for learning and not to party.

Plenty of on campus groups one can join.

Fraternities make for tiers of students- those who are in, those who are out, which leads to suicide, depression
and for an unequal world, where a secret handshake should not denote success

imho

2. Do you ever tire of being wrong?

Banning Fraternities/Sororities would be quickly ruled unconstitutional and subject the university to additional judgments.

"Hazing" is already illegal at nearly every college/university; your plan it to make it "double illegal"?

Possession of Marijuana/Cocaine is also illegal yet it goes on all the time; your plan for this would be?

9. Freedom of association

was upheld as a 1st amendment protection by the USSC.

Only 44 states have anti-hazing laws, which means there are still six that need to catch up.

10. Truly amazing

how some people have no understanding of constitutional principles and are in favor of violating the rights of others when is comes to actions of which they disapprove.

12. I agree. Also skull and bones leads to CIA which also should be abolished.

also ones parent going to a school should not get the kids a free entry card

In fact, a kid should experience something where they are not judged by their parents by the teachers
who say, oh , you are 41's kid, well, that means I got to give you an A+ otherwise, well, there is no otherwise

I never wanted mine to have the same teacher.

Because one always compares and being that all kids are unique, there should not be competitions.

6. I agree.

Maybe someone should tell the Department of Education that their "Dear Colleague" letter from 2011 was a very, very bad idea.

14. Nixon also drank water and breathed air.

Your point is?

Oh, that's right, nothing other than your eternal, recurring, non-sequiturs that have nothing to do with the topic being discussed. *Yawn*. Business as usual.

16. The topic of the OP is addressing allegations of sexual misconduct

without due process of law. You are on record as being in favor of ignoring the Constitution with regards to this issue. How many African-American men are you willing to see expelled from school without due process of law?
