The Betrayal of Kalamazoo College

Like many private colleges, Kalamazoo College was founded by a Christian denomination for the glory of God. And like many private colleges, it was gradually torn away from its foundations and has become just another college overrun by leftists.

Legislation would allow K-College to discontinue Baptist requirement

K College was founded by Baptists, and so not surprisingly its charter required that its board have a certain proportion of Baptists. But as it turned away from its mission, this proportion was gradually reduced to today's 15%. Since this violated its charter, it required approval from the state legislature.

Now, legislation has been introduced in Lansing to complete the leftist takeover of K College. It would completely eliminate the Baptist ties to K College.

Who supports this legislation?

K-College alumna, Rep. Kate Segal, D-Battle Creek, introduced House Bill 5650, which is co-sponsored by several local lawmakers, including Rep. Robert Jones, D-Kalamazoo, and Rep. Larry DeShazor, R-Portage.

It's no surprise that Larry Deshazor is siding with his Liberal/Democratic friends again.

The Michigan Education Association (MEA)is probably very proud of the investment of thousands of dollars in Larry's campaign account. As are the Socialists in Higher Education throughout the state.

Your diatribe fails to mention that it was K-College that asked for the the Legislature for the bill in the first place. This was not some instance where "leftist" lawmakers are pushing their "leftist" agenda. This was the result of K-College changing with the times in order to better serve their student body.
