“School Days, School Days….”

   

  Did you know the Department of Education has an Office for Civil rights?  I didn’t know the Department of Education has an office for Civil Rights.  I thought they were about education ……two, three, four……and such.  Well, anyway this is what the Office for Civil Rights is up to these days:

In a “Dear Colleague” letter sent to colleges and universities in April, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Russlynn Ali announced new federal regulations publicly funded schools must employ to address allegations of sexual harassment and sexual violence

The new standards most notably lower the burden of proof to prosecute.

“[I]n order for a school’s grievance procedures to be consistent with Title IX standards, the school must use a preponderance of the evidence standard (i.e., it is more likely than not that sexual harassment or violence occurred),” Ali wrote.

     There is an organization called FIRE which is fighting the DOE ‘regulations’, as the linked article states. There will be court challenges, Congressional hearings, the whole nine yards. The point here is, just when you thought you had heard it all -you ain’t. If you’re a young person attending college, or thinking of attending college, be on notice. The chances of your being snatched up by the Dean for looking crosseyed at a coed, or a fraternity brother, or for just being accused of same, and remanded over to the authorities and booted from the premises, just increased exponentially. See kids, here’s the thing – you might as well face it, universities aren’t addicted to love, they’re addicted to those federal funds.
     So, proceeding from the customary loss of innocence of our youth to the loss of the presumption of innocence of our youth, where do we go from there? Well, how about the loss of the presumption of sanity?

A House bill that could drastically overhaul the nation’s gun control laws and strengthen federal power over states’ handling of individuals’ background checks is expected to be introduced today by New York Rep. Carolyn McCarthy

Another major provision of both bills focuses on the mental health issues of those seeking to possess firearms.

Apart from further defining and stipulating who qualifies as a “mental defective” both bills call for the development of mental health assessment plans for institutes for higher learning. Both bills would require federally funded colleges to develop a plan for the institutes to address risks posed by students who appear to need mental health help.

Colleges must have a mental health “team” ready to assess potentially dangerous students as well as procedures in place for making voluntary and involuntary mental health referrals.

     Did you get the part about ‘involuntary mental health referrals’? And you got the part above about the tossing of the presumption of innocence into the dustbin of history, right?
What time is it, Kids? No, no no! It’s not Howdy Doody Time! It’s crunch time!  The future is either yours……or theirs.

  1. I didn’t check out the link, bob…not sure I can right now, too ticked off.

    So tell me, does this loss of sanity piece of nonsense (exercising self-restraint, my friend) include “re-education” of those that the gov determines to be insane? Or will they just be medicated into a state of oblivion?

    We really have to start coming up with some viable options to our government’s education system, you know?

  2. No, no re-education…yet. For now just foreclose the possibility of the ‘mental deficients’ to have the means to defend themselves, as part of the anti gun campaign waged on multiple fronts. What you need to take from these two stories is that it isn’t the mean-spirited Republicans that the statists are bearing down on, it’s the students, and also note that they are forcing a third party to do their dirty work, and that this is not a new tactic.
