In an appearance at the University of New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan pushed new guidelines to help universities and colleges prevent and respond to campus rape and sexual violence.
Biden authored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act -- and in an emotional speech, said that nearly two decades later, the United States still isn’t getting the message.
Pres. JOE BIDEN: “No means no. No means no if you’re drunk or you’re sober. No means no if you’re in bed, in a dorm, or on the street. No means no even if you said yes at first and you changed your mind.” (WSCH)
The federal civil rights law Title IX requires schools to handle cases of sexual violence quickly and appropriately -- but the vice president argued, many do not have adequate systems to take complaints, protect victims, or notify victims of investigation results. (Video: NECN)
A writer for Inside Higher Ed says the new federal guidelines are described as a clarification rather than a set of new rules, but do contain key differences.
“The department is stipulating that the burden of proof required for colleges to take action is less than that required for criminal convictions, and stating that there are specific requirements that apply to colleges for incidents that take place off-campus.”
An article from The Center for Public Integrity explains, this clarification has been sorely needed--with tragic consequences.
“For years, college administrators have criticized the federal government for its lack of specific and consistent instruction on how to resolve student claims of campus rape; the confusion, critics say, has resulted in campus judicial processes that can leave student victims feeling further victimized.”
But a writer for the Chronicle of Higher Education reports, some legal experts, like Peter Lake, are concerned university investigations are quote- “inevitably fraught.”
“Criminal prosecutors, for lack of evidence, decline to pursue many cases; under Title IX, colleges must.
Peter F. Lake, director of the Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy: ‘We've been lured into doing something in a criminal-justice model that the criminal-justice system itself hasn't been able to deal with.’”
The 19-page regulatory guidelines were reportedly mailed to colleges, universities, and school districts across the United States.

Education Sec. Arne Duncan will offer states the chance to bypass "unrealistic" goals set by the No Child Left Behind Act.
Starting July 1, a new repayment option is available that makes monthly payments more affordable for Americans with heavy federal student loan burdens. The new Income-Based Repayment (IBR) plan protects borrowers by linking payments to income and family size. A related new program offers additional benefits to those working in public service jobs."We know many graduates are concerned about their ability to repay student loans in the current economic environment," said U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. "This new plan addresses the issue head on by giving them the option of a monthly payment tied to their income."The new IBR program is available to borrowers repaying new and existing federal student loans (Direct or Federal Family Education Loans). Those with high student loan debt relative to their income are likely to be eligible for the IBR program, resulting in reduced monthly payments and, in some cases, no monthly payments.Produced for Department of Education

Inventor Dean Kamen, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Professional Engineers and Sponsors Recognize Exceptional Robotics
Special Video Appearance by Bill Gates
Twenty thousand FIRST (r) supporters - mentors, students, volunteers, sponsors and fans - gathered this weekend at the
Georgia Dome in Atlanta to experience the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Championship, the
ultimate heart-pounding, high-energy celebration of science and technology. The 19th annual FIRST Championship culminated in
a frenzied final round of robotic matches when teams from Redondo Beach, Calif., Milford, Mich., and South Windsor, Conn.,
emerged victorious as the winning FIRST(r) Robotics Competition alliance. FIRST founder, inventor Dean Kamen, presented this
award and a list of others, and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan joined Kamen in presenting the 2010 FIRST Dean's List
More than 500 teams from 30 countries competed in the three levels of FIRST: FIRST(r) LEGO(r) League (FLL(r), grades 4 to 8,
9 to 14-year-olds in the U.S and Canada; 9 to 16-year-olds outside the U.S and Canada); FIRST(r) Tech Challenge (FTC(r),
grades 9 to 12, 14 to 18-year-olds); and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC(r), grades 9 to 12, ages 14-18).
"Over the past few days in Atlanta, we have had the opportunity to inspire the next generation of innovators and engineers,"
said Kamen. "This is increasingly important as we try to build momentum in the U.S. to fuel a robust talent pipeline of
innovative 21st century STEM professionals. For the thousands of young problem-solvers who participated in the FIRST
Championship, we caught a glimpse of the great things that are in store when these students tackle greater challenges in
Another noted technologist, Bill Gates, sent a special video offering encouragement and congratulations to all competitors at
the FIRST Championship.
