Education Secretary Betsy Devos said she intends to rescind Title

The students of the school fared better, which is infinitely more appropriate.

DeVos has always been known for promoting charter schools and school vouchers and recently made headlines for stating she would reconsider current enforcement of Title IX policies that emphasize gender equality.

DeVos says she wants more school choice, while Joel says he doesn't want to see public school funds going to something that might not have as much accountability.

But those inside say they were pleased the education secretary chose them for a visit.

"I have a group of people that meets monthly that's a Title IX hearing committee and we had met shortly after that speech so we discussed that there and we will be continuing to discuss it", Stoops said.

"The (Women's) Center knows that the University will closely monitor any legal developments, but at this time, does not have plans to change current policies or current response to sexual violence on campus", Dalton said. "You're not being "oppressed" when another group gains rights that you've always had", noted one student.

It would indeed be counterproductive to not be doing everything possible to prevent campus sexual assault. She rescinded the Obama administration's guidance for higher education on sexual assault allegations, falsely claiming that it offered little protection for the accused. DeVos often glosses over fears that her approach could undermine public schools.

Clery Act requirements do not apply to K-12 schools.

"Our country's investment in affordable higher education provides individuals with the skills they need to participate in the 21st century economy", the lawmakers wrote.

"The draconian cuts imposed by the Trump-DeVos education budget would mean more kids packed into classrooms and fewer resources to train and retain teachers", he said.
