Drama at Baylor University. The Waco, Texas school has been caught mishandling sexual assault cases. Specifically cases regarding football players. Reports are saying that the university was encouraging students to not report accusations and essentially just sweep it all under the rug. Not okay. Yesterday, the university announced that President Kenneth Starr, would be fired as president, but will remain as a law professor and chancellor. It must be a class on how to break the law, get fired, but then be given responsibility for teaching tomorrow’s leaders. WTF. We’ll pass on taking one of his classes…
In case you forgot, Kenneth Starr is the lawyer connected with Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998. The university also fired football coach, Art Briles, after 8 seasons. BFD as it has been the glory years of Baylor football. Briles was in trouble after many of his players had multiple sexual assault cases. Bad news all around. (Source: USA Today)
Shoulda, woulda, coulda. They should have read our Pulitzer Prize Nominated What Happens in Campus Stays on YouTube book like hundreds of other universities. If you have teenagers they need to read it too!
