Illinois Attorney General Raoul joins opposition to Title IX changes

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul has joined 18 other state attorneys general in opposing changes to federal Title IX rules proposed by Betsy DeVos’ U.S. Department of Education.

Title IX aims to prevent sex discrimination in education programs that receive federal funding.

The attorneys general say a proposed rule will undermine the long-established anti-discrimination protections in the statute by narrowing the definition of sexual harassment, limiting schools’ obligations to respond to claims of sexual harassment, and mandating unfair grievance procedures.

Illinois is the third Midwestern state to support the letter of opposition, joining Iowa and Minnesota.
