With the economy in recession and the cost of college tuition outpacing inflation, many Christian parents may have to consider public universities for their children. If your family is looking at public higher education, you need to prepare your children for what they will face there.
First, they must expect their faith and values to be mocked—in both the classroom and campus culture. Not every professor will openly mock Christianity, but expect your child to encounter some who are hostile to Christians. Second, expect your child to be thoroughly indoctrinated in evolution. Third, do not expect freedom of speech on campus—unless the speech is politically correct. Finally, expect your child to be exposed to all types of immorality, including alcohol and drug abuse, and sexual immorality.
Your children must be prepared before they enter a public university. So, how can you help them do this?
Your children can successfully attend public university and finish with their faith intact, if you take the time to prepare them while they are still living in your home.
