LATEST SENATOR McCASKILL
WASHINGTON – After Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced her department is rescinding its current campus sexual assault guidance in favor of interim guidance while it writes new rules, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill—who has helped lead the effort to continue these key protections for students—issued the following statement:
“Secretary DeVos has taken the progress we’ve made protecting survivors and making our campuses safer, and thrown that progress into chaos. As students head back to school this fall, their Department of Education has just told them if they’re assaulted, it’ll now be harder to fight for justice and ensure their safety on campus. I want Missouri’s students, parents, and administrators to know that I’ll keep fighting with everything I’ve got to make sure we never turn our back on survivors or on their school’s obligation to keep them safe.”
