11 MYTHS OF HIGHER EDUCATION
Discussed by Dr. Thomas Lindsay
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)


Part 1 of 3

In America, there is a three-fold crisis in higher education:
1. College is becoming increasingly unaffordable.
2. High tuition rates are forcing students and their parents to burden themselves with historically high student loan debt.
3. Thirty-six percent of students, after spending four years in college, demonstrate little-to-no improvement in their capacities for critical thinking, complex reasoning, and clear writing.

Dr. Thomas Lindsay is the Director of The Center for Innovation in Education within the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Listen as he discusses the dire situation of college tuition and education in America. He has “11 Myths in Higher Education” that every parent must read immediately.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are too many college students (and their parents) paying too much and learning too little?

When did people begin to see a problem?

What is being done about this?

Myth #1: Our public universities are fulfilling their constitutional obligation to protect the First Amendment on their campuses. FACT: At least one-third of American universities and colleges have speech codes.

If we lose free speech on our campuses, it’s just a matter of time before we lose it in the public square,” Dr. Lindsay warns.

Tune in to the next two segments for more myths…



PART 2 OF 3 - 11 MYTHS OF HIGHER EDUCATION
Discussed by Dr. Thomas Lindsay
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)



Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are college tuition and student-loan debts increasing at the same rate of other goods and forms of debt?

Should every college and university offer a low cost affordable baccalaureate?

Myth #4: Online learning is a fad that will never significantly change the face of higher education. Dr. Lindsay offers information from Department of Education study as proof that online college is just as good as attending in person…

What is public opinion of the current state of colleges and universities in America?



PART 3 OF 3 - 11 MYTHS OF HIGHER EDUCATION
Discussed by Dr. Thomas Lindsay
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)



Questions/Issues Discussed:

FACT: The United States spends twice as much money on higher education than Europe and Asia.

Are parents beginning to push back against the increasing higher education tuition costs?

Myth #6: In Texas, tuition had to increase to make up for state cuts in higher education. Listen as Dr. Lindsay reveals some shocking numbers here!

Do the majority of students still attend college full-time?

Do Federal Education Funds go to poor students?

Myth #9: Administrative costs have remained steady and have not contributed to skyrocketing tuitions and student debt. This one is actually laughable!

Is a college degree required to prove you are “smart”?

Parents: Before sending your student to college, schedule a meeting with the recruiting office. Ask them how many companies are recruiting from that particular college in the area of study your child wishes to graduate. This is very important! If not many students find jobs quickly, move on to the next college.

What is the average debt a student leaves college with?



PLACES JESUS VISITED
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 5

Mark Lanier continues with his “Devotions from the Life of Christ” series with a look at the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John…plus Ephesians. Do you see yourself in any of these stories?

The Road Map Stops are six places where Jesus visited: Bethlehem, Capernaum, Caesarea Philippi, Sea of Galilee, Gerasenes, and Jerusalem.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Road Map Stop #5: Gerasenes: Demons Within Us Mark 5:1-5 – Jesus Heals a Man with a Demon


Do you see yourself in this story? Why did the people ask Jesus to leave after he healed the man?

Road Map Stop #6: Jerusalem: The Cross of Christ Ephesians 2:1-10

By Grace Through Faith Paul used the word “grace” many times in his writings. What does it mean? What does it mean to YOU? What is the difference between grace and being gracious? Can you achieve salvation on your own? Obviously not! This is why we need Jesus!

THE LORD’S SUPPER
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Do you see your sin like God sees your sin?

Are you working for His kingdom until he comes again?

Remember: We, who have Jesus, have endless hope.

In this segment today, Pastor Fleming offers the Lord’s Supper – the receiving of the bread and wine (juice).

NOTE: Don’t worry if you don’t have bread or wine (or juice like the Baptists) – just use whatever you have on hand – even a french fry and diet soda!

Tune in next week as Pastor Fleming reminds us that “We Are His Miracle”.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
