Governmental Failure Enforcing Federal Law Addressing Campus Drinking Practices

A report issued on March 14, 2012, by the US Department of Education's (ED) Inspector General confirmed prior findings of ED's failure to enforce the statute addressing campus alcohol excess (see links to the law below) for surely the past 12 years and most likely for the 22 years since passage in 1989.  This failure has allowed the devastating effect on campus environment, student safety and student health which has grown worse over the years given the growing excess of alcohol use by students.

Student tragedy that led to questioning Ed's enforcement


"The institution should provide maximum opportunities for students to live in an alcohol-free environment and to engage in stimulating, alcohol-free recreational and leisure activities." (From the Sense of the Congress)
