This is one of the reasons why she has become such a target for the left.

Betsy DeVos is not backing down on proposal to rein in ‘kangaroo courts’

A year after the Department of Education proposed changes to regulations on campus sexual misconduct investigations – and nine months after the public comment period closed – the final regulations have yet to be released.

Opponents of due process in Title IX proceedings are still trying to weaken the proposal, scheduling meetings with the Office of Management and Budget until the week before Christmas.

If anyone was concerned that Secretary Betsy DeVos* was buckling under the pressure from the “Believe Survivors” lobby and its allies across the mainstream media, she dispelled those concerns in a speech to the Independent Women’s Forum, which gave her its “Woman of Valor” award Wednesday.

Brooklyn College Prof. KC Johnson, who chronicles Title IX litigation, pointed out that DeVos’s remarks “don’t suggest an intent to weaken” the proposed changes despite the long-delayed release of the final rules.

DeVos connected her department’s work to rein in “kangaroo courts” with her guiding principle that “government is generally not the solution to any problem,” especially in education:

So, we are working to dismantle the government social engineering in education, including the previous administration’s staggering overreach on Title IX. …

Justice demands humility, prudence, and truth. And the truth is: the so-called “guidance” by the prior administration [the “Dear Colleague” letters] failed too many students.
