    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos is trying to change an Obama-era policy concerning  Title IX with the belief the policies were overreaching and the accused were not given equal treatment. We brought on Lara Bazelon, an associate professor at the University of San Francisco, to explain why she supports DeVos' policy changes, and why colleges are not equipped with handling sexual assault cases. More of Bazelon's work can be viewed http://larabazelon.squarespace.com/overview.
