From the Associated Press:

“The Education Department wants to narrow the scope of civil rights investigations at schools, focusing on individual complaints rather than systemic problems, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press.

“Under the Obama administration, when a student complained of discrimination in a particular class or school, the education agency would examine the case but also look at whether the incident was part of a broader, systemic problem that needs to be fixed.

The document is currently circulating as a draft; a final version is expected in early 2018 after staff and other parties have reviewed and provided comments.
