President Obama has already made fighting sexual assault on college campuses a major priority, and now he's widening this focus to offer more resources to combat sexual assault in K-12 schools. Monday, the administration released guidance to help schools respond to sexual misconduct.
The materials range from telling school districts to create a separate sexual misconduct policy to covering what should actually be in the policy. The Education Department's assistant secretary for civil rights told Politico: "It follows from very serious, very egregious issues we see in our enforcement work as well as ongoing requests for information from our educators who want to do right by the students."
