DeVos says Penn State's response to the Jerry Sandusky scandal was "wholly inadequate," according to Breitbart News. And Diane Gramley of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania thinks it the school obviously did not learn its lesson after the former assistant football coach was found guilty of child sexual abuse.

"They paid out $100 million to those who claimed that they were abused by Jerry Sandusky," Gramley notes. "It has cost them, and it seems to be apparent that they have not changed any of the policies."

Gramley, Diane (AFA of Pennsylvania)The education department's Office of Civil Rights has entered into a "Resolution Agreement" with the school to make changes that will bring the university into compliance with Title IX.

"As long as Penn State holds to that agreement and follows through on a multitude of changes that are being demanded of the Department of Education, then it will be a much safer environment," Gramley asserts.

Sandusky, 76, received a 30- to 60-year sentence in 2012 after being convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
