Conservative Suppression on Campus Turns Parents Away from Colleges
By Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times
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.”
