McCaskill questions athletics-department role in sex-assault cases involving athletes

Education News from Washington Post - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 2:00pm

About one in five colleges surveyed nationwide give their athletic departments oversight over cases of sexual violence involving student athletes, a Senate Democrat reported Wednesday.

That finding emerged from a survey of hundreds of colleges that Sen. Claire McCaskill’s staff conducted about campus sex assaults. The survey provides an unusually detailed look at variations in policies and customs in what has become an explosive issue for higher education.

Strauss: Will the FCC ignore educators in modernizing key U.S. technology program?

Education News from Washington Post - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 12:31pm

This post is a rebuttal to one that I published a few days ago about the federal “E-Rate” program — which offers discounts for schools and libraries to get Internet access and telecommunications — under the headline “A watershed moment for technology in education.” The earlier piece was co-written by Julius Genachowski, managing director of The Carlyle Group and former chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, and Jim Coulter, a commissioner of the bi-partisan Leading Education by Advancing Digital Commission, and co-founder and chief executive officer of TPG Holdings. Genachowski and Coulter urged the Federal Communications Commission to approve at its meeting this Friday a plan to start to modernize the E-Rate program. Genachowski and Coulter wrote that the proposal “is a first step in this modernization, which redirects over $2 billion in existing E-Rate funds out of unnecessary reserves and into classroom Wi-Fi installations and upgrades” and that this “first step would positively impact six million students in the coming year.”
