It's Official: The U.S. Department of Education Department Has Eliminated Obama-Era Title IX Guidelines

It's official: The U.S. Department of Education has eliminated key Title IX guidelines on how sexual assault cases should be handled at schools. Education secretary Betsy DeVos announced today that while her department is still reviewing all of the rules, they have removed the "Dear Colleague Letter" enacted by the Obama administration, which was placed in an effort to provide clearer and more definitive instructions on how schools are expected to handle sexual assault claims.
