EdNext Podcast: New Rules Will Change How Schools Handle Sexual Assault Allegations
The Department of Education’s proposed new Title IX regulations have generated over 72,000 comments and a lot of debate, especially the requirement that schools allow students who have filed sexual-assault complaints to be cross-examined.
As the public comment period for the new rules is about to close, R. Shep Melnick joins Marty West to discuss how federal mandates on sexual harassment have evolved and what happens next.
