Rep. Susan Davis Statement on Proposed Title IX Rule to Weaken Standards on Protecting Students
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (CA-53), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Higher Education and Workforce Development, released the following statement on the Department of Education’s proposed rule to weaken standards for how schools respond to campus sexual assault and harassment.
“This Title IX proposal turns back the clock on years of work that survivors and advocates have done to protect students on campuses across the country. I've heard from schools and students concerned about the confusion and lack of accountability this new proposal would cause. I join survivors, advocates, and colleagues in asking the administration to withdraw this proposal and start again.”
