Michelle Goldberg: Why The Campus Rape Crisis Confounds Colleges

This seems pretty good to me.

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion regarding the extent to which higher education institutions should be involved in this sort of thing. While I understand the point that parallel investigations can be conducted largely independently, and I'm not necessarily opposed to such investigations on behalf of educational institutions, it does seem very clear to me that the first and necessary avenue for any victim of sexual assault or rape must be the legal system. If that system is horrendously broken, then it must be fixed, but the responsibility can't simply be offloaded onto these institutions.

The path forward on this matter seems very clear and obvious to me, and I'm having a hard time seeing it any other way.

Yeah, I have never understood why this isn't simply a legal matter.

OTOH, they also have harassment policies and suchlike...and you'd also think that should be a legal matter...
