Biden caves, reinstates Trump plan…

Sharing is Caring!

The U.S. Department of Education announced Monday it is reversing its decision to stop Trump-era data collection about teacher-on-student sexual assault allegations after facing sharp public backlash.

In November, as Breitbart News reported, the Biden Education Department decided to “terminate questions put in place by former president Donald Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that sought to provide a fuller understanding of sexual violence perpetrated by teachers and staff against students.”

The proposal, affecting the Department’s yearly Civil Rights Data Collection, would have allowed the Biden administration to stop collecting data on “rape or attempted rape, or sexual assault” allegations so long as the allegations were followed by “a resignation or retirement prior to final discipline or termination.”

According to Education Week, the Biden administration decided to include the questions after “further reflection,” but did not elaborate on what that reflection entailed.
