Education Department proposes cutting civil rights investigations in schools

The Education Department Wednesday proposed to cut down the scope of civil rights investigations at schools, focusing on individual complaints rather than general problems.
According to the Associated Press, during the Obama administration, if a student complained of discrimination in a particular class or school, the education agency would not only examine the case but would also examine if the incident was part of a systemic problem required to be solved.
It has been proposed that the word "systemic" be removed from the guidelines with regards to the department’s civil rights procedures.
This change would allow schools to have a greater say in how a case is handled, compared with the student or the parent who filed the complaint. It would eliminate the appeals process.
