Who Protects The Suicidal?
from Inside Higher Ed
Nearly three years after a revision of federal regulations, colleges and the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights are still squabbling over when potentially self-harming students should be sent home — and in at least one case where OCR intervened, the reinstated student went on to commit suicide. Experts say that the case at Western Michigan University, where student Jackson Peebles filed a federal discrimination complaint with OCR after being involuntarily withdrawn due to suicidal tendencies, is not the only one where a student has hurt him or herself after pushing for readmittance.
