Mothers Defend Sons Accused of Sexual Assault

Article here. Excerpt:

'Four women met late last month at a restaurant in a Twin Cities suburb, where they spoke for hours, so intently their waiter had trouble getting their drink orders.

Each had a son who had been accused at college of sexual assault. One was expelled and another suspended. The other two were cleared, yet one had contemplated suicide and the other was so crushed he had not returned to school.

The women had been meeting regularly to share notes and commiserate. Now, over red wine in a corner booth, they were finally savoring a victory.

A few days before, Betsy DeVos, the education secretary, had rescinded tough Obama-era guidelines on campus sexual assault, saying they violated principles of fairness, particularly for accused students like their own sons.'

Single-sex schools

Why colleges just don't revert to single-sex, I dunno. Problem solved.

Oh yeah, I get it: money, etc. But if the same ppl still go to college (ie, demand stays the same), and the colleges conspire (in the legal way) to assume sexes such that the ratio is closer to actual demand, then if they all shift over to single-sex in the same, say, 5-year period, their financial issues won't be so bad. And they'll still have their students.
