Click here to make sure your kid doesn’t become a liberal jackass at college

Where should I send my kids to college? It’s the question I’ve heard more than any other in the past few weeks.

The list of schools where students can get a decent education has been dwindling for some time. And atmospheres of political correctness are nothing new. But with the second coming of ’60s radicalism — met this time with weak-willed administrators caving to long lists of student demands — the issue is whether there are any universities where dissenting students have half a chance.

Some schools are better than others. Colleges like Hillsdale in Michigan, which takes no funding from the federal government, doesn’t have to worry about conforming to insane Title IX statutes. And its luminous faculty treats students from a variety of ideological backgrounds with respect.

For religious families, there are also some clear answers as well. Brigham Young University may be a stickler when it comes to church doctrine, but students don’t go there to hide from ideas that may offend them.

Evangelical schools like Wheaton also encourage the rigorous exchange of ideas.

But what if you’re still determined to send your child to a prominent liberal-arts college or nationally recognized university and you’re not an evangelical or a Mormon?

Jon Shields, a professor at Claremont McKenna whose previous work has involved identifying and interviewing conservative professors across the country, notes that they aren’t sprinkled evenly at different universities. In fact, schools in the South and Catholic schools are more likely to have ideological diversity on the faculty than others.
