U.S. Department of Education expected to revamp sexual assault investigation rules
WASHINGTON -- More rights could soon be afforded to college students accused of sexual assault. The proposed changes could be made public as soon as this week, according to multiple reports quoting sources in the Trump administration. Higher education experts are calling this an overhaul that would change the way sex crimes are investigated on campuses across America. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is signaling it’s time for more due process. She’s expected to release a new proposal before Thanksgiving that will allow those on college campuses-- accused of sexual assault-- to cross-examine their accusers.
