Bookstores are quickly becoming a thing of the past . . . just a distant memory . . . although this saddens me, it also causes me to reflect on how our access to information is rapidly changing. No longer must we hunt and peck with card catalogs, microfiche or encyclopedias, the world of information is at our fingertips. This not a novel revelation; however, it is reasonable to assume that our educational institutions may be next on the chopping block.
If colleges/universities exist to educate the next generation, what would become of them if the opportunities for education were made available online . . . for free? Would class warfare subside if any with access to the internet could access any school's curriculum? The future is now, my friends. . . did you know that MIT offers virtually the entire catalog of courses online . . .for free. Check it out: http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm or https://www.edx.org/ with courses from Harvard, Berkeley, MIT, and University of Texas.
So . . . with access to knowledge available to ALL . . .with no boundaries based on race, color, or creed . . . is the game changed? Not yet, because these courses come with no "piece of paper" to validate the student's participation and completion. They are presently for personal edification only . . . how long can that last? If the information (including lectures, required reading, and coursework) is available and the goal of education is . . . education . . . is the formal education system, as we know it, on its death bed?
Matt discusses this and more . . .
Secular universities are closing their classical philosophy programs. But why? In a day and age where there is more confusion than ever, shouldn't universities be compelled to teach students how to think? Furthermore, it may be said that Christian universities like Liberty University, Biola University, and other likeminded schools will be the torch-bearers not only of Christ...but of logic and philosophy, as well. In this episode, we will interview philosopher J. Andrew Payne and get his take on the apparent takeover of proper thinking.
What role does the black community play in this plight?
What can we do as a community to save our schools?
KIM GRIFFO, PRESIDENT OF UIU LINK IS OUR GUEST
Craig Steven Wilder is the chair of MIT's history department and has written three books including his most recent, Ebony & Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of America’s Universities.
He began his career as a community organizer in the South Bronx while attending Fordham University and earned his Ph.D. in urban history at Columbia University. Wilder has taught at Williams and Dartmouth Colleges, advises community and social organizations and provides curricular and professional development workshops with public school teachers in low-income areas of New York City. He is also a senior fellow at the Bard Prison Initiative.
Wilder's contribution to the arts includes serving as curator for national and regional exhibitions at the Brooklyn Historical Society and the Chicago History Museum and serving as a contributor to significant documentaries including Ken Burns' Central Park Five and Kelly Anderson's My Brooklyn.
I speak with Wilder about what shapes his intellectual, civic and artistic passions, how he learned to honor and articulate sometimes tough historical matters and why the prestige of the early American university rested on the propagation of slavery and racial inferiority.
Friday Night Lights show highlighting players and coaches from high schools all over the country.
BEYOND FINDING THE RIGHT SCHOOL
Student athletes not only want to get into a college or university, they also are looking for scholarship opportunities. Identifying student athletes that are capable of garnering scholarship opportunities isn't simple. In an arena of just over 7 million High School students athletes only 2% of those students will receive some level of scholarship.
In this competitive arena MYP2P is the first and only social network that brings coaches, players and pros together to help kids reach their goals and realize their dreams. We will work tirelessly to help make the connections and foster the athletic excellence that's required to get recognized by Colleges, Universities, Scouts and Coaches.

Colleges everywhere are coping with shifting demographics, rising expectations, an unstable economy, and the challenges of the digital revolution.
Nowhere is this clearer than with small Christian colleges and universities, yet these schools continue to train leaders and impact lives.
In this program we will talk with three Christian college administrators about the challenges and opportunities they see for the future.
D. Clay Perkins is president of Mid-Atlantic Christian University, Elizabeth City, North Carolina.
Michael Sweeney has resigned as president of Emmanuel Christian Seminary in Johnson City, Tennessee, where he remains as a professor.
Jon Weatherly is dean of the School of Bible and Theology at Johnson University, Knoxville, Tennessee.

There are dates that indicate new beginnings: first day of January, the first day of a newborn and the first day of school. Well there is also "new beginnings" in our thinking. I have begun a new way of thinking and I am happy to report that it is working. I have always been interested in the power of the mind and the creativity of thoughts, but I had not before now embraced the potential of getting what you want by focusing on the attainment of your desires.
I have talked to you about the "Law of Attraction" and I have been listening to "life coaches" for ten months or more. Now I can report that I am starting to get it. Recommedations of "pay attention to what you are paying attention to" does not make much sense when everything is going well. However, when things start to go bad and worry creeps in and you do not understand the Law of Attraction, the problems can be bigger and more complicated.
I was fortunate to read a short story that had a phrase in it that said: " an angel stepped between me and fear and I could breathe again." I was encumbered by the consequences of being a victim of identity theft. I had I felt anger with nowhere to vent it.
I pondered how I would feel if I did not have adverse circumstances due to identity theft. I began to think about what I always enjoyed doing and began investigating what I would have to do to get back to teaching. I looked up information on teachers in secondary schools, trade schools, colleges and universities. I read the requirements for on-line teaching. Armed with fresh data, I set out to get a teaching position for the new school year. My new beginning began earlier this month with my teaching at a university again.
