DESPITE Differences FIRE & Know Your IX Find Common Ground
While Know Your IX and FIRE disagree on several major points, the State Policy Playbook released by Know your IX demonstrates an understanding that the status quo is unfair for both accused students and complainants. The playbook recommends schools guarantee a number of rights for students that would leave them better protected against inaccurate findings of responsibility than they currently are at many institutions. And despite our several policy differences, it is refreshing to see a group whose mission centers on survivor advocacy also acknowledge that all students are disserved by the status quo and should be guaranteed certain basic rights in order to ensure a fair hearing.
