Title IX Investigations Violate the Constitution
In a letter to the editor published in the Chronicle of Higher Education, ‘Ed. Dept.’s Demands in Title IX Investigations Violate the Constitution,’ former Education Department lawyer, Hans Bader, comments on the recent American Association of University Professors’ (AAUP) report on Title IX,
“A recent AAUP report was right to criticize the Education Department for trampling on faculty members’ rights to academic freedom, due process, and shared governance…”
Bader also stated that:
“As a former Education Department lawyer, I believe its demands violate both the Administrative Procedure Act and the Constitution.”
The American Sports Council also maintains that the institution of Title IX’s three part compliance test for athletics also violated the Administrative Procedure Act.
