Biden’s Department of Education: Looking Out for the Sexual Predators?

US Dept of Educations Logo

In an attempt to appease the Teachers Unions, the Washington Free Beacon is reporting that the Biden Administration is rolling back the data collected on “teacher-on-student” sex crimes:

**The department’s Office for Civil Rights will not ask school districts questions regarding teacher-on-student sexual assault allegations as part of its 2021-2022 Civil Rights Data Collection, proposed Thursday. The change is designed to “reduce burden and duplication of data,” an Education Department spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon. But critics say eliminating the question is the Biden administration’s attempt to appease teachers’ unions.

**The Education Department will still ask districts to report documented cases of rape and sexual assault. But it will not ask school officials to report allegations that resulted in the resignation or retirement of the accused.

**Reporting alleged sex crimes in addition to documented cases provides a fuller picture of sexual violence in schools, as the accused may retire, resign, or seek employment elsewhere before a district can reach a conclusion in the case.

We know that sexual assault cases surged according to the data collected during the Trump administration after former Secretary Betsy Devos added the data to the records. So who’s looking out for your children?

While Democrats are oftentimes concerned about sexual assault on campus at the college level, k-12 sexual assault by teachers, appears to be something they want to avoid.

The Education Department found that reports of sexual violence at schools rose from about 9,600 in the 2015-2016 school year to nearly 15,000 in the 2017-2018 school year. That’s an increase of more than 50 percent.

Have Democrats politicized sexual assault on children? And if so, why?

This is something that should have all parents concerned. With all of the data-mining from vendors who sell their products to schools, the data that remains the most important will no longer be collected.

Will that give parents a false sense of security?

These are important questions to ask our New Hampshire Democrat delegation when they come back to New Hampshire to campaign.
Senator Maggie Hassan
Congressman Chris Pappas

Tell them both as they campaign for re-election, this is unacceptable. The U.S. Department of Education should show some independence and look out for the families in New Hampshire.

Re-instate collecting this important data on teachers.
