For John, BLUF: When running a Star Chamber it is best the defendent be as ignorant as possible. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the Blog Post:
HIGHER ED’S LOBBYING ARM OPPOSES TELLING STUDENTS THEY’RE PRESUMED INNOCENT: In responding to proposed Title IX regulatory changes, the American Council on Education says that while some colleges are OK with saying students should be presumed innocent, “other colleges would be uncomfortable with including a federally mandated statement in the institution’s notice indicating a ‘presumption’ in favor of one party… We recommend that the Department remove this requirement.” They actually say doing so might “cause confusion.” Give me a break.This is the kind of reason Western Civilization is no longer taught in high school or college. Heck, the students might be exposed to Anglo-Saxon legal principles like due process or innocent until proven guilty.
That would set the Progressive agenda back.
