New Liberal Narrative: DeVos Doesn’t Care About Civil Rights in Education

Written by  Mike LaChance

“inquiries to identify systemic issues and whole classes of victims will be scaled back”

If you’re wondering why President Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos needs millions of dollars in security, this is one of the reasons.

DeVos is trying to make improvements in her department but is being predictably cast as someone who doesn’t care about civil rights.

Erica L. Green writes at the New York Times:

Education Dept. Says It Will Scale Back Civil Rights Investigations

The Department of Education is scaling back investigations into civil rights violations at the nation’s public schools and universities, easing off mandates imposed by the Obama administration that the new leadership says have bogged down the agency.

According to an internal memo issued by Candice E. Jackson, the acting head of the department’s office for civil rights, requirements that investigators broaden their inquiries to identify systemic issues and whole classes of victims will be scaled back. Also, regional offices will no longer be required to alert department officials in Washington of all highly sensitive complaints on issues such as the disproportionate disciplining of minority students and the mishandling of sexual assaults on college campuses.

The new directives are the first steps taken under Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to reshape her agency’s approach to civil rights enforcement, which was bolstered while President Barack Obama was in office.

Obozo cared nothing for civil rights he just wanted to stir up HATE and DISCONTENT. All he ever wanted was HATE to prevail and his lackies were good at giving him that very thing.

I though that ''education" WAS 'the civil right".. But now I am hearing that 'education and civil right(s)" are something different than each other.. So.. What happened to the 'education' part, if civil rights overrides 'education'?
