What I Read Online – 10/01/2013 (a.m.)

    • Don’t be too fixated on landing a job “in your field.” The truth is, you don’t yet have a field.
    • What you’re facing is a common problem: BA graduates confuse their major area of study with what they expect to be their eventual careers.
    • With some of the best-known songs in musical theatre (Tomorrow, It’s The Hard-Knock Life, Easy Street), ANNIE also boasts spectacular sets, glorious costumes, a hilarious script and of course, the adorable dog, Sandy.  
      Don’t miss one of the most popular family musicals of all time!
    • In the truest sense, Christians understand that every home is a church, a government, and a school—the first church, the first government, and the first school that a child will come to know. The duty of Christian parents to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord cannot be delegated to anyone else—not to the state, not to the schools, and not even to the church.
    • Those who set educational policy are now overwhelmingly committed to a radically naturalistic and evolutionistic worldview that sees the schools as engines of social revolution. The classrooms are being transformed rapidly into laboratories for ideological experimentation and indoctrination.
    • Is public school an option? For Christians who take the Christian worldview seriously and who understand the issues at stake, the answer is increasingly no. The number of Christian parents coming to this conclusion increases each year. We can understand the nostalgia that many Christians hold about the public schools. I spent every minute of my school life from the first grade to high school graduation in a public school. And yet, I saw the ideological transformation of the schools before my own eyes. Long ago, the public schools entered a Brave New World from which no retreat now seems possible.
