There are plenty of competively priced private colleges which are not leftist indocrination centers. We live near California Baptist University. It is a solid school with a strong engineering department including chemical engineering. In the past Christian institutions were traditionally liberal arts schools. Many are expanding their offerings in the sciences so as to have as many programs as their secular counterparts. My question to Hicks is, "Given the options, why are you sending your child to an indoctrination center?" It is a bit ridiculous to complain about something on which you are willing to spend several thousand dollars. "Maybe one day conservatives" will demonstrate common sense by not supporting liberal institutions.
