TRANSCRIPT: Betsy DeVos’s Remarks on Campus Sexual Assault

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos vowed to replace the “failed system” of campus sexual assault enforcement, to ensure fairness for both victims and the accused. The speech, harshly critical of rules put in place by the Obama administration, was made to invited guests at George Mason University.  “Here is what I’ve learned: the truth is that the system established by the prior administration has failed too many students. Survivors, victims of a lack of due process, and campus administrators have all told me that the current approach does a disservice to everyone involved. That’s why we must do better, because the current approach isn’t working.” Read DeVos’ prepared remarks in full. By Susan Svrluga
