Melinda was so distraught by her daughter’s new outlook that she admits to once throwing a vase through a window in frustration. Annabella describes her “educational” experience:
After Annabella’s graduation, Melinda resorted to hiring a $300-a-day deprogrammer in an attempt to undo the damage. Annabella began to question some of the teachings about the evil patriarchy and the anti-male stance she says she’d encountered at the college. She also thought back on the culture her freshman year when she felt there was a pressure to shrug off gender roles; one student ritual called for cutting off one’s hair into the “MoHo chop.” (Annabella declined to do this.)
Many readers are probably wondering, if you saw that mission statement, why would you ever send your kid to that school? The answer unfortunately is that most major colleges now feature extremely woke mission statements, and unless you send your child to Hillsdale or the like, they’re going to get a healthy dose of progressive ideology. Conservatives have lost higher education to woke administrators and professors, and we must fight back.
