News That Should Concern You, Part 2

In this story, it is reported that at least two dozen universities are now offering coed dorm rooms. Not coed dorms, mind you—they've been around for years—coed rooms. The basic reason given is that it will "allow some or all students to share a room with anyone they choose — including someone of the opposite sex."

Certainly, some parents are concerned...and they should be. [And in the case of public universities, your tax dollars may be paying to support these choices.] One girl's father said,

"When you have a male and female sharing such close quarters, I think it's somewhat delusional to think there won't be sexual tension," the 52-year-old Feldman said. "Maybe this generation feels more comfortable walking around in their underwear. I'm not sure that's a good thing."
However, he is letting his daughter make the decision. I would call that a severe parenting error.

What sort of philosophy is your child getting when he/she goes to a secular school or university? If it's a philosophy that says this is "no big deal," please look into another school!
