In a very poignant letter (9 pages) to the Chairs of the House and Senate Appropriations’ Committees and Subcommittees, Commissioners Gail Heriot and Peter Kirsanow of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights raise fundamental legal questions about actions of the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education.  

In a similar vein, two sets of law professors (Penn Law and Harvard Law) sound the alarm about OCR’s views and interpretation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
