Inspector General Probes DOD Schools Handling of Student Misconduct

The Defense Department’s school system’s policies for dealing with serious student misconduct including sexual assault and sexual harassment are under scrutiny by the DoD Inspector General, according to an announcement from the IG.

The evaluation is required in the Senate Armed Services Committee’s report that accompanies their version of the fiscal 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The committee also directed the DoD IG to examine DoD’s policies for helping child victims of misconduct and for rehabilitating child offenders, including whether the DoD took action to hold offenders accountable.
