Tuesday, February 15, 2005Last week over at Stones Cry Out, I discussed the lack of attention received by evangelical colleges and universities. There's a lot of reasons for this; some defensible, others not so much. Here's one possible reason: the quality of the graduates. By this I mean that evangelical schools are not turning out graduates that go on to meaningful careers in journalism, academia or the arts. The coursework at most evangelical schools is indistinguishable from that of their state-sponsored counterparts, and it seems as though many of these schools win over recruits because they promise a sex/drug/booze-free atmosphere with a handful of chapel services.
I don't mean to be overly critical...just thinking out loud.
