Iridescent green sweat bee

with 20 comments

One of the things that makes America “the land of the free” is our guarantee of due process. The proposed changes to Title IX would let a single school employee act as investigator, judge, and jury. That’s not due process. The proposed changes would also permit schools to dispense with live hearings and the right to cross-examination. That’s not due process. If YOU were an accused party, you would find that lack of due process appalling, yet here you are trying to impose that injustice on other people. You must rescind the proposed changes.

That’s what I wrote yesterday in a comment to our government about the unjust changes to Title IX that the current régime has proposed. You can submit a comment, too.
