All knowledge starts somewhere in faith – Wheaton responds to “The Great Accreditation Farce”

Christian colleges like Wheaton should not get accredited because they undermine purpose of higher ed, says UPenn Professor

Accreditation and religious colleges

    First Things: Of all the bones to pick with contemporary American higher education—and there are many—the University of Pennsylvania’s Peter Conn has decided to call our attention to what he calls “The Great Accreditation Farce.” For him, the farce is that regional accreditors—who hold the keys to all-important federal student aid—actually display a modicum of respect for the distinctive missions of America’s religiously-affiliated colleges.

The closing of the academic mind

    M.G. Oprea at The Federalist: “Unfortunately, this is already a reality in most universities across America, where academics and university administrators alike are trying, often successfully, to discredit and prohibit certain ideas and ways of thinking. Particularly in the humanities, many ideas are no longer considered legitimate, and debate over them is de facto non-existent. In order to delegitimize researchers who are out of line, academics brand them with one of several terms that have emerged from social science theory.”
