ADMINISTRATORS AT DUKE DEMONSTRATE THAT THEY’RE not smart enough to learn from experience.
Three Duke University students were the victims of the highest-profile fraudulent rape claim in modern American history. That fact alone should make the University particularly sensitive to the dangers of false rape allegations, and the need for a firm commitment to due process in handling any allegation of sexual misconduct.
But Duke administrators seem to worry not about violating the due process of rights of their students but instead about running afoul of politically correct campus ideologues. So, starting this semester, the University has adopted a new “sexual misconduct” policy—a policy that even some Duke administrators fear will lead to an increase in false rape claims against Duke students.
Why would anyone pay a fortune to send their kid to a place that has demonstrated this degree of incompetence — and sheer meanness?
