For all those parents around the country sending little Billy and Sally away to school, what will they be learning and what if any possibly violent situations could they be faced with?
So your kid was accepted to his or her dream college and as the parent, save for having to pay for it, you couldn't be more proud.
But beyond the known academic reputation of the school, what you heard from a guidance counselor or read in U.S. News and World Report, how much do you really know about the place you will be sending them for 4 and possibly more years?
Jews in school
You most likely already know that even if there is a "significant" Jewish population on campus, this faith will be in the strong minority.
It's okay though because you found out there is an active Hillel on campus or Chabad nearby.
But is there anything else you may be missing?
Are you aware of anti-Semitic movements on campus? Any knowledge of hate crimes?
Violence directed specifically against Jewish students?
Beyond that are they being taught by professors who are willingly presenting both sides of any given argument such as the one concerning Israel and the Palestinians?
Is the school that they will attend being led by college administrators who have a history of showing strength in their convictions who possess a solid moral base that distinguishes between what is right and what is wrong?
Leaders who can differentiate between the Constitutional right for freedom of expression and something that crosses the line into infringing on the liberty's of others?
And, unlike Mayor Bloomberg and the #OWS crisis in New York City, do they have the courage to take whatever steps may be needed if a line is crossed?
Steps not only to protect the rights of other students but to ensure the safety of other students as well?
So at the end of the day, how much do you really know about the college of your choice?
This video will show you just how important it is to find out!
Movements present on campus certainly doesn't mean your kids shouldn't go there, because in reality college campuses are a microcosm of society and in life you can't run and hide.
But as a parent, you need to know what's going on!
