Betsy DeVos on Civil Rights
DeVos, who rescinded Obama-era guidance last year, has said these changes would make the process more fair to accused students and to schools. The leaked draft states that previous guidance lacked clarity about schools' responsibilities under Title IX, leading accused students to sue their schools and prompting survivors to file complaints to the Office of Civil Rights, which DeVos has said was "weaponized" by the Obama administration.
In 2011, the Obama administration issued guidance expanding schools' responsibility under Title IX, and schools adopted procedures and designated employees to handle cases of sexual violence.
