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.
This episode will be part of a series that will be committed to the students, past and present, of Bauder College and Kaplan University.

"Mrs. Hartsfield had us sign it in order to receive a laptop for online classes stating that we won't sue, but we had no other choice but to sign if we wanted to keep our credits and have the opportunity to graduate."
THE AGREEMENTS. NEVERTHELESS, THE WAIVERS WILL NOT PREVENT STUDENTS FROM SEEKING REDRESS, LISTEN TO TUESDAY'S SHOW TO LEARN MORE:

Helping High School students athletes to get considered for and accepted at colleges and universities is our Mission. We offer parents, coaches, schools, business community and anyone else that influences the life of a student athlete, the tools and resources they need to advance their academic and athletic pursuits.
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.
