Over-reaction?

I found this article very relevant considering Barnard’s own recent strides towards gender blind housing. But does anyone else find the parent’s reactions to be way over the top? Threatening her daughter by refusing to pay tuition, simply because she made a mistake? Yikes! Also, check out the comments: at least some of them are educated on gender blind housing.

I always mess up the linking process, but here it is! http://thechoice.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/05/06/co-ed-dorm-room/?partner=rss&emc=rss

  1. It sounds like the parents just wanted to intimidate the daughter so that she would give in to their demands but I don’t think they’d actually let their daughter take out a loan.

    but anyways we should have co-ed housing at Barnard 😉
