In contrast, freedom of speech advocacy group Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, applauded the move and said that DeVos' announcement "acknowledged that the department's approach to enforcing Title IX, the law against sex discrimination in federally funded education programs, is fundamentally broken".
Odd - we could have sworn we heard Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos commit Thursday to do right by victims of rape and other sexual violations on college campuses, and map a road out of the hellscape made by Obama-era guidelines that deputize educators to serve as investigators, judge and jury on what amount to crime reports, leaving victims and accused alike at sea.
"The system established by the prior administration has failed too many students", Devos said in a Thursday address.
It's notable that the "victims" she seems most anxious about aren't those of sexual assault - they're "victims of a lack of due process".
In the years following Obama's efforts, California and its universities passed several laws and policies to shore up campus sexual assault prevention and investigations.
He expects the announcement is a precursor to ending sexual assault procedural and processing guidance from the federal government. The letter was sent to more than 7,000 universities that receive federal funding, and the guidelines lowered the standard of proof for accusers.
"I know many of you are survivors, I know how you might feel betrayed today", Biden told people on the call. As she said, "This conversation may be uncomfortable, but we must have it".
DeVos also stressed her personal revulsion for sexual assault and her commitment to prosecute campus rape. Among them was Meghan Downey, 22, a recent graduate from the College of William & Mary, who said she doesn't want the Trump administration to "attribute more validity to the voices of the accused".
One proposed idea DeVos discussed was the development of a "Regional Center model" to handle Title IX complaints.
The secretary repeatedly emphasized how unacceptable the crime of sexual assault is.
Protesters gathered outside, including Jessica Davidson and her group "End Rape On Campus", who were dismayed by the fact that no survivors groups were invited to attend.
Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said in a statement that the Trump administration is "once again choosing politics over students, and students will pay the price".
In her emphasis on the accused, she suggests that there's parity between the relative handful of accused men who are ever disciplined at all and the many horror stories reported by the one in four women who say they were sexually assaulted during college. Wesleyan's Michael Roth said that the Obama guidelines had created a necessary cultural change, ending the period when "men, with impunity, would throw their weight around", sexually harassing and assaulting women. The education secretary says she is reviewing guidelines some consider to be unfair toward the accused. In an email, they said they are advocating for students to be part of the process for selecting a commencement speaker. About 800,000 immigrants, including tens of thousands of school-age students, are protected under the program.
