Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is rescinding guidelines to investigate allegations of sexual assault on college campuses. DeVos criticizes the Obama Administration’s approach to the problem, calling it unfair.
Her new policy contains guidelines she says will help schools “treat all students fairly”.
The Obama Administration changed the way colleges handle allegations of sexual assault, starting hundreds of investigations into schools that did not follow its policies.
Advocates say those Obama-era policies have protected many students and forced schools to confront problems that used to just get swept under the rug.
