Attorney General Josh Shapiro teamed up with nearly 20 attorneys general to submit a formal letter calling on federal officials to withdraw a recent proposal from Education Secretary Betsy Devos and the Department of Education.
Shapiro says the proposed rules that would re-establish how schools handle sexual assault allegations, would undermine the anti-discrimination protections in place and would also weaken protections against sexual harassment and violence for students on campuses.
The letter notes that while the education department’s rule claims to support the current acts in place, there are many provisions inconsistant with it and would actually be a step backward.
