REPORT: Conservative Parents Are Increasingly Keeping Their Kids Away From Left Wing Colleges

Many colleges in the United States have become nothing more than left wing indoctrination centers and Conservative parents are catching on. Why should parents spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to send their kids to schools that only teach radical left wing ideas?

The Washington Times reports:

Conservative suppression on campus turns parents away from colleges

An admissions letter from Harvard University was once considered cause for celebration, but in conservative households, that may be changing.

David M. Whalen, provost of Hillsdale College, a school with a conservative reputation, said he has noticed an uptick in the number of parents who send their children to Hillsdale to avoid colleges where conservative thought is met with ridicule, suppression and violence.

“The educational environment has become so distempered that, in many cases, parents are now looking elsewhere,” Mr. Whalen said. “In fact, more and more parents tell us at Hillsdale that they had assumed their children would go to this or that institution, but they are deeply grateful to find Hillsdale instead.”

A survey released this week by the Washington-based Pew Research Center shows Republicans have never been more down on higher education…

“Higher education has been progressively radicalizing for a long time, but recent events have brought the extent of it into high relief,” Mr. Whalen said. “It’s virtually beyond parody. Campus violence, suppression of speech and intellectual inquiry, and the rather haughty presumption of moral superiority undercut confidence that much of real value is going on there.”

Our entire system of higher education needs an overhaul.
