I read a magazine article recently in which the reporter went to two Christian colleges, one a more standard Christian college, and another with an explicitly classical emphasis. When asked what their objectives were, the first college answered, “To save America.” The second answered, “To save Western civilization.”
Why is this significant? It is significant because the second school realized that our problem is not of recent origin and that it isn’t unique to this country.The decline in our country and our culture is much more fundamental than most people think. And this decline has a lot to do with changes in education over the last century.
