McCaskill: Colleges flunk Sexual Assault 101
07/09/2014 5:45 PM
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill released her report on how well colleges and universities are investigating sexual assaults on their campuses.
The bottom line wasn’t pretty:
Too many schools are falling short, the Democrat said.
“If we’re going to turn the tide against sexual violence, survivors must be protected, empowered, and given the confidence that if they make the difficult choice to report a crime, they will be treated with respect and taken seriously,” McCaskill said in a statement.
“Unfortunately, the disturbing bottom line of this unprecedented, nationwide survey, is that many institutions continually violate the law and fail to follow best practices in how they handle sexual violence.”
