Education Department watchdog to look into DeVos team's oversight of ESSA, dismissal of civil rights complaints
from Education Week
The U.S. Department of Education's internal watchdog — the Office of the Inspector General — will be looking at the agency's process for dismissing civil rights complaints. The plan was revealed in an agenda for 2019 posted on the inspector general's website. The department recently revamped its process for investigating potential civil rights violations. The Obama administration looked at every complaint for potential evidence of systemic discrimination. The Trump team is only planning to do that in certain cases.
