Equity, Affirmative Action, and Sexual Harassment: Student Civil Rights and Proposed Rules Changes by the U.S. Department of Education


by Sarah Hurwitz, David Nguyen & Suzanne Eckes - February 16, 2020

From equity and school discipline to affirmative action and sexual harassment, the current political climate is affecting the civil rights of P-16 students. The U.S. Department of Education (“Department”) has proposed to rescind, or has already rescinded, numerous rules and regulations that were developed by previous administrations. Rather than providing state and local education agencies with clarification, these policy changes are causing uncertainty. In this article, we focus on three areas that impact the civil rights of students, providing policymakers and educators with a timely explanation of the changes that are currently underway.
