Let's talk college!
I am LOVING the college discussion; I had no idea that the opinions on if/when/where/why to pursue higher learning were so passionate! Unfortunately, the bulk of the drama is taking place in my inbox. And, guys, that's just no fun. Can we take the discussion public? If you've written me an email on the topic, expect a request for full disclosure in your inbox today. And if you've refrained from airing your views, do you mind taking the time to post them? I think we might all have something we can learn from this.
Some of the things I'm hearing, just to get you thinking:
1. College isn't something Christians should encourage their children to look into; faith is often damaged or snuffed out entirely there.
2. Homeschooling a child and then putting them in a classroom environment is counterproductive.
3. Not sending your child to college is akin to shackling his potential for a lifetime.
4. College isn't the best thing in the world, but it's the way it is, so ... pick the best one you can and guide your kids through it.
