Something Good In Education

Something terrific has happened in education.

While public education continues to crumble under the weight of twisted tolerance and perverted political correctness, more focused on advancing their experimental social laboratory than meaningful education, there is another bright rising star in the field of private education. Another light that is rising in the darkness.

After a number of years of financial struggles,
The King's College in New York City has turned the corner financially, defined a clear and intensified mission and named a new president.

Dinesh D'Souza has been named president. D'Souza is known worldwide as one of Christianity's most effective apologists, a best selling author of books like,
"What's So Great About America" and "Illiberal Education". He has spoken out on the subjects of church-state separation, same-sex marriage, affirmative action, Islam and atheism. He was a policy analyst in the Reagan White House and has been called by Investor's Business Daily, "One of the top young policy makers in the country."

Although The King's College has existed for nearly 70 years, in recent years they have overcome their financial challenges, relocated to the Empire State Building in downtown New York and in the past few years have seen enrollment increase by double digits.

Now, many believe they are poised for significant growth in enrollment and measurable impact on the culture.

D'Souza says he sees King's as a part of the solution to the problems in higher education as they are discussed in his book, "
Illiberal Education".

He says, "Our goal at Kings is to prepare intellectually gifted students to transform society."

May God bless the college, its ally Campus Crusade for Christ, the new president and all concerned.

And may God bless you. Have a great weekend. Thanks to all who are a friend of Faith and Freedom.

  1. With all the good news in this article, let's remember one thing: the only institution that God ordained was the church. The church will remain, even when schools turn away from Biblical teaching to liberal thinking and actions, as Whitworth University (where I went to college and graduated over 40 years ago) have done. Princeton Seminary, where my uncle graduated in the 1930's, is another example.
