How are changes to sexual harassment rules working in schools
"In May, the Department of Education made sweeping changes to title nine regulations Peter Medlin with W J reports on how colleges and universities are coming to terms with new policies. Many advocates in school officials say will chill reporting the new regulations changed the definition of what qualifies as sexual harassment under title nine to meet. The new standard harassment must be quote severe pervasive and objectively offensive. She Wa Patel is the Director of justice for students survivors at the National Women's law center. So these rules kind of in total really just turn title nine on its head as a civil rights law says they raised. The threshold of what schools can choose to ignore, and it's a departure from guidance that's been in place for wrong twenty years if a student isn't being outright denied equal access to a program or activity that might not be enough. So that means some substance would be forced to endure repeated an escalating levels of abuse before they can get help. The new rules also require institutions of higher learning to dismiss reports of harassment the happened off campus. Now, they'd had to put together a separate sexual misconduct policy to apply to those situations. This has ramifications for online harassment especially as many schools move to. More virtual instruction during the pandemic faith Ferber is a student engagement organizer with no your nine. She says, if someone's harassing you in a class zoom meeting that would be covered but if someone is sexually harassing you over facebook and then you have to see them in the zoom classroom that wouldn't necessarily be covered a northern Illinois University. Title Nine Coordinator. Sarah Gardner says they do have procedures to help students. We had the opportunity to see okay even though it doesn't reach this level of conduct how we address it as university but as faith ferber says the problem is that places like and I You could ignore those cases that they choose to, and she says, the Education Department isn't there to protect students either we can't count on our schools can't count on the government. So all we can count on is students and student power to really make a difference in holders schools accountable at a you students held protests last year on the basis of the university was mishandling investigations and the process was slow and apathetic. The university hired another coordinator and Garner says, they're much better equipped to handle their case load. Now, the new regulations are over two thousand pages two, thousand, thirty three to be exact and. The policies themselves fit into the last thirty pages or so the reason the document is so long as so that the Department of Education headed by Betsy Devos is trying to justify why the chains are needed and respond to public comments. She Wally catalysis says there were more than a hundred thousand comments mostly opposing the new rules they were school principal. There were mental health experts over nine hundred trauma specialists joined a letter and raised concern about the rule. So the significant opposition and yet they continue to move forward Sir Garner A, you were one of the many schools that Senate comets harshly not. Many concerns made it into the final regulations. Patel says, the provisions were largely unchanged from what was proposed, but there were also a few changes that weren't even in the proposed rule. So they didn't have a chance to comment. One example is that colleges and universities are now barred from dealing with complaints by people who aren't actively participating in an education program that means a school won't be allowed to investigate a complaint of sexual harassment if the survivor already graduated or they transferred or let's say they dropped out of school because they were sexually assaulted and they don't plan to re enroll and colleges. Could dismiss cases when the respondent who's being accused isn't enrolled or employed by the school but tell that could include professor who retires or who resigns after abuse comes to light. Another chain that wasn't included originally reiterates that the department's guidelines supersede any state law and some of the new title and changes are in conflict with Illinois. State Law one forces those going through an investigation to undergo cross-examination in a live hearing and as Sarah garnered I says, we have a state law that says, you cannot cross examiner one another. This is the price sexual violence and Higher Education Act however now, the federal. Regulations. You must cross examine each other in public comment. It stated that this quote turn educational centers into courts of law and allow for parties to be subjected to quote demeaning inappropriate, and irrelevant probing there waiting for the Illinois Attorney General. Kwami Raoul away in he along with seventeen other attorneys. General is suing the Education Department to block the final rules from going into effect. Garner says they'll find out if they have to proceed with the guidance on August fourteenth there are countless other issues advocates say make the process more difficult for the people involved and for the school conducting the investigation and Peter Mullen.

"So I think we wanted to start off by hearing from each of you like why were you? Are you interested in the type of work that you do in museum and cultural spaces, and then what do you see as the challenges from your position where you are in your career the challenges of these museum spaces? And in that sense to like we also, since our podcast is called all my relations kind of thinking about. The ways that museums and curation fit into this idea of being in good relation. So that's like a multi parter. But basically, why are you interested in this work What do you see as the challenges and then like? Any sort of thoughts around these ideas of museums and curation fitting into the idea of being a good relation. well, I so I. This is Jamie and I grew up with my father being in the navy and so my mom Mama's Osage my dad's non-native and he was in the navy. So we moved around a lot but spent summers at home in Oklahoma participating in our launch PGA and being you know with family and relatives there but when I was in elementary school We lived north of Chicago and Chicago has some incredible museums and so you know I would go to museums on the. Weekend with my family's or we would go for field trips and I loved museums The Museum of Science and Industry was split place that release sparked my interest and curiosity I loved the Field Museum where you could go and like go into a pyramid and you know be Indiana Jones which is problematic in a lot of ways to but you know and so in I think it was fourth grade was like the one year where learning about native Americans was part of the Illinois State Curriculum. And so we went to the field museum to the native American Cultures Hall, and I was really excited because I had told my friends that I was native American and they were like, no, you're not. You don't live in t p You know you don't look like you know Pocahontas or like have a pet like a free Koon. And so we go to the museum and they have a case about osage. people and it's like osage men's costumes. And there's like no representation of women and the closet are on view not the kinds of clothes that Mike that we wear today even you know our dances and. You know it was just like a really sad experience, and then my friends where these kids in my class told me like. Well, it's because you're not a real Indian anyway. We didn't believe you and it was just like this really kind of like damaging. Experience for me and so a lot of the reason. Know. The reason I got into museums is because I want kids to go into museums and feel like they're represented in meaningful and respectful ways until like experience the kind of joy and curiosity you know the the can happen in museums and that should happen in museums and non those kind of negative feelings. So there's a lot of work to be done. Things are getting better you know, but there's still a lot of a lot of space for for growth. I had the same experience at the field museum but that was like three or four years ago when I was asked to do a show there and I walked in and there's those totem poles that are in the in the center house and. You know they're like still unnamed polls in like some Haida itis did it or some sense Simpson artists and then I went you know walked into the native area and they had these. What we call square deal is we run square deal for ceremony there these paddle boards and we don't really talk about it's not even something I would publicly talk about here and say this is why we doing what it's for because it's super sacred and it's quiet something we do. quietly and those when you rents could illitch those boards are taken they're putting back inside their boxing they're putting put away. Forbidden for good reason, and then those were just sitting there at the front of the exhibit and I was like, oh no I cannot go I cannot walk in here. You know like I literally turned around and walked in the other direction and the person giving me a tour was like where are you going I said this is I can't go in here. This is inappropriate but you know that was a couple of years ago so I can completely relate to that Jamie. Well and I will say about the field museum they you know have taken down the old native American Culture Hall not the North West Coast but then American you know the other part of the hall and have been working with you know a collaborative team and a native earn indigenous Advisory Group to reinstall that and so you know there is you know some conversation happening there and some there's a great show their curated by a Nina Sanders Uppsala Women in Warriors that you know Sanders did supported by Miranda Roberts who's a curatorial fellow there, and so you know there I don't want to just like bash the field museum. You. Right. Yeah. Actually. Really want to see that show. It looks really cool. Yeah. My heart goes out to Nina and the team because it opened just like literally a week before every buddy needed to be at home and chiltern please Ram. So but it's such a feat in terms of just that that monumental of exhibit with Contemporary Indigenous Artists is there a a real world renown institution so big props to Nina entity. So. I can go ahead and jump in. So you got edge OKLA CIT kiani Bushes Gene Takuji chador begun Annella could though Kanada Show I am connecting in from a the Mayakoba the lands of the the my people in Santa Ana Pueblo, my partner's home in North Central, New Mexico in it's where we raise our son and our family. And so I I think listening to. Jamie Story going back to where I found the magic and the interest in museums I was a young kid in the interactive galleries of the heard, museum and waiting for my dad to. Finish up some consulting that he was doing as a photographer on with the museum. So I would just wait and play all different museums all over the south west and all over the country as he would have these meetings and so It was always a really exciting place to be to explore I when I filled out my application for college I knew that I like art I knew that I like art and I knew that I like history and so I just put the two together. I didn't know that art history is a thing I grabbed. His Kayonza?

Were going to open up and you know. Maybe they'll put me in jail maybe not or number three You know What should I do you know? Give me some advice and I don't have any advice for it. It's it's so frustrating through this whole process. With the governor's executive order is really as become a dictatorship You know I can't tell you how many emails I got from people saying. Why are you doing anything? Why are you doing anything? While the legislature is a co equal branch of the government. And we've been completely cut out of this whole Pandemic and our dealing with it in the state of Illinois and even when we were at this last week for the five days we were there. We were calling on the governor to. Let's have some hearings Myra Downer I WANNA talk to the scientists. That says that it's okay to hurt people into Walmart. But it's not okay to open up the mom and POPs has had that has less than a quarter of the people in Walmart at any given time Again is one of those things that's really right in your face. There's no rational logic for that. Walmart's way huge. They have people in their small businesses. And it's just it just doesn't make any sense and had said against it's just right in your face. Yep and again. It goes back to Again not making light of the virus but we are Kost to Republic and there's no clause and the First Amendment for your right to assemble in case of a virus The government's job in these situations is to educate people with science with everything and and inform them to help them make the best decision possible but at the end of the day. It's up to that individual to make those decisions and who was government to sit there and say that you can't open your private business and even more so to stay is quote unquote is central.

Yeah Forty Forty two point six billion right and it depends it depends largely upon federal bailouts means my tax dollars that are doing to the federal government than are going to Illinois government. They're counting within that budget. They're counting on a five billion dollars of federal bailout. Money which does even does seem the two hundred some billion in the red. They are with their with their patches. Already right at the two hundred billion dollar of unfunded pension liability. I think that's I don't WanNa say it's dishonest because it's completely honest but have to look at that for what it is at. Two hundred billion dollars of unfunded pension liability is if every person within the system or they've been in the system one year or been retired for thirty years is collecting all our Bassett's today so it's a little unrealistic. Sega but it is true. I mean added the number While they're working on lowering it they're working on lowering. It started literally trying to start people that I mean. It's that that you know. Hey there's we'll figure that Saddam will kill everybody in in nursing homes with code Let's make sure they get it by moving people with Kobe in Jersey homes. At you know getting rid of the getting rid of the fat is what they're doing in their minds. These people don't care anybody and that's that's been a big problem in the state of Illinois to is both sides of the Aisle Republicans and Democrat governors in the past. They've made These pension holidays and they've skipped pension payments and we all know What it's like at one point in our life or another what it's like when you skip it courtesy card payment and then you're just paying interest and it seems like a revolving door and you can't get out of it and Unfortunately for Illinois government.

Is You know in the state of Illinois. The funding for public education is so far down the hill that we're playing catch up and which is why everybody complains about property taxes in the state of Illinois State is at funding properly in that leaves the local governments to have to fill in that gap and the only the only way they can do that. But it's the Celebi property taxes so funding education Is a big deal for every legislator and the fact that they Increase spending a lot of areas but not education was a little frustrating for me But overall yeah you know just down to the nuts and bolts of it when we're increasing spending one point four billion dollars from last year in the middle of an economic crisis is not only Irresponsible it's downright criminal and he's GonNa have to be held accountable for this and I hope people start paying attention and stop looking at how.

"I mean what's striking is that you know it doesn't seem as if president trump is too worried about him because now you know since since all the scuttlebutt about walsh emerging i mean we haven't seen a single presidential tweet belittling joe walsh or giving him a nickname or anything so he doesn't seem to be on trump's radar. Let's go to our notes from the field and charlie. Let's go to you well one of the bills that the governor signed and he's been very busy signing bills. He's only got well. I think roughly roughly a week to finish with the some six hundred bills at the legislature set him was one that <hes> increases that a minimum wage for teachers and it's designed to deal with a teacher shortage by making sure that teachers get paid higher salaries the last time the minimum wage for for teachers was raised was in nineteen eighty and it was raised to ten thousand dollars a year so under this new measure over the course of the next several years it would go up to forty thousand by the twenty twenty three twenty twenty four school year and the idea is say is to try and attract more people into the profession and now the downside which we've been hearing particularly from some downstate in rural school superintendents is that we can't afford this. We're going to have to raise property taxes. Although i think governor pritzker and signing this mentioned how state has been putting more money into education the last several years and i guess he intends to keep going forward with it so baby. The notion is that these higher salaries will be covered by this additional state aid..

I think the divide between police and citizens that that came to be it's always existed for the record much larger over the past few years created a situation in which police departments thought we need ways to better connect with our communities, and this is the route they've decided to go as one of the routes. I'm sure there are other God, I hope there are others. Because if this is the only thing police, not Mr. doing to reach out to their communities. This isn't. Yeah. It's not going to be given..
