But just because you are paying tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars for your childâ€™s education does not mean the university is a safe place.
A report released this week by Insite Security is sure to shake parentsâ€™ confidence. The security firm analyzed crime statistics on and around the campuses of the eight Ivy League colleges as well as Duke, Stanford, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Chicago. This study was intriguing because it looked not only at the on-campus statistics that colleges are required to report, it also took into account crime in the areas where students socialize off campus. (The off-campus statistics were drawn from the F.B.I.â€™s uniform crime report.)
Really? This is “sure to shake parents” ? Most of the parents went to the same schools in the 1970’s and 1980’s – when things were *much* worst, at least in West Philadelphia. Just seems like lazy reporting with the special hook of $41,000/year spent in
“Ostrander Internationalâ€™s security assessment and training program, mainly for the children of international business executives, royalty and celebrities, which starts at $41,000 for the first year.”
