How Betsy DeVos Is Making Schools More Dangerous For Kids



 





The Trump White House on Tuesday released a report on school safety that was commissioned in the aftermath of the 2017 Parkland, Florida massacre. Shockingly the report downplays the role of guns in gun-related school violence. Instead it focuses on undoing disciplinary policies that were enacted under Obama - policies that protected students from racial and other forms of discrimination. The school safety commission also argued - much like the President and the NRA have publicly done - that arming teachers as first responders to an active shooter is a good option.

The commission was headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who just a few weeks ago enacted a set of guidelines to rewrite Title IX protections. The new rules on how schools should handle sexual misconduct claims eases the liabilities of schools over the rights of victims.
