Kevin Jennings to leave USDOE

  1. Not to be an Obama apologist (because I agree that the administration is not doing nearly enough to protect LGBT youth from bullying), but the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (which recently welcomed Roberta Achtenberg to its ranks) also held a hearing on bullying (primarily addressing the bullying of sexual minority youth) last week, and I was surprised that Jennings was not invited to testify, although it makes sense in light of his resignation. All four panels are on C-SPAN: http://c-spanvideo.org/videoLibrary/event.php?id=193763

    The Commission is accepting submissions from experts for another 9 days (for 15 days after the hearing), as they make a determination about whether to recommend the passage of a federal bullying prevention statute, so if you have not already submitted something, I encourage you (and other advocates of queer youth) to do so.
