WHAT The Feds Have Done To Colleges And Schools

The Administration has stacked the deck against students accused of sexual harassment or assault in campus disciplinary proceedings. Colleges are required to impose “interim measures” against accused students before they receive a hearing on the charge against them, measures that can include expulsion from a dorm and classes shared with the accuser. ..OCR instructed colleges to restrict cross-examination, even though the Supreme Court has declared that cross-examination is the “greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth.” OCR ordered colleges to abolish the clear-and-convincing standard of evidence that was once the norm in college discipline, recommending instead the far weaker “preponderance of evidence standard (50.001 percent certainty)
