DeVos will quit having Civil Rights bureaucrats write law
http://www.politico.com/story/2017/07/16...ice-240610

DeVos continued: "The adage 'justice delayed is justice denied' is fitting in this instance; too many students have been forced to wait months, and in some cases years, for adjudication of their complaints while OCR chose to collect years of data about an institution."

DeVos suggested that some of the changes taking place at OCR come after discussions with "career staff ... who had identified material problems impeding their ability to promptly seek justice."
Conservatives had frequently criticized the Obama administration for issuing far-reaching, albeit nonbinding, "guidance," for instance, informing states they must allow transgender students to access bathrooms and locker rooms aligned with their gender identity or risk loss of federal funds. Conservatives contended such "guidance" sidestepped the formal rule-making process. The Trump administration rescinded the transgender guidance earlier this year.
That kind of guidance may have been "politically expedient," DeVos wrote, "but it deprived the public of meaningful opportunities to provide input. At my direction, the department will no longer mask new regulations as Dear Colleague letters and will issue new regulations only after appropriate notice and public comment."

This also raises the question of duplicative agencies. Should the Department of Education have a Civil Rights office or should that be handled in the Department of Justice?

It would have been priceless to have seen Patty Murray's face when she read the letter. She generally is a sour puss but that would be epic.

More importantly, DeVos should issue a "Dear Colleague" letter to colleges and universities, reversing the previously issued unconstitutional guidance of effectively revoking a person's 5th amendment rights when accused of sexual misconduct.

Colleges need to get out of the business of investigating crimes and leave it to law enforcement. It'll be a victory for due process of law.
