Dear Higher Education, Pardon the Disruption

Dear Friends,
W hy do Christian parents consistently abdicate stewardship over the minds and worldviews of their young people at one of the most formative periods of life? Why do God-fearing families surrender their sons and daughters as hostages to a morally bankrupt education system, knowing that their likely ransom will be violated convictions and unbelief?
For many years I have shared with families about the pitfalls of traditional higher education, challenging parents not to abdicate their role as authorities and overseers at one of the most critical times in their children’s education. If you have a student considering community college or traditional school, I encourage you to read my recent blog post, “Dear Higher Education, Pardon the Disruption.”
In this blog post I cite a college professor who lays out his radical plan for changing the values of the next generation. I also discuss debt and how it enslaves students and delays marriage, and share the latest statistics on how even some well known “Christian” schools are becoming “Christian” in name only.

Redefining Higher Education
As grim as the higher education outlook is for young adults, the demand for college-educated people has never been higher. This is where conflict spurs a movement to disrupt higher education and reinvent college. Leading the charge to disrupt education and provide an affordable, family-friendly approach to college is CollegePlus!
A college degree is not a prerequisite for success, and should only be pursued after prayerful consideration. However, as you consider the best long-term education approach for your children, I encourage you at minimum to learn more about CollegePlus! and how their program uniquely serves the family. And I continue to give CollegePlus! my full support and recommendation.

CollegePlus! helped me, a mother of 3 young children and a full-time homeschooling teacher, to finish my degree that I had wanted to complete for the last 13 years. I was able to complete 72 credits within a 13 month period and now have my Bachelor’s degree.
