LGBTQ students face discrimination while Education Department walks back oversight
from The Brookings Institution
The U.S. Department of Education under Secretary Betsy DeVos has recently taken steps to walk back the agency's role in protecting the civil rights of LGBTQ students. In multiple congressional appearances, for example, DeVos has consistently declined to say that the department will protect LGBTQ students from discrimination. Further, the agency decided this past fall to rescind the Obama administration's Title IX guidance regarding transgender students.
