Overview

Sobering, eye-opening, thought-provoking look for parents and students at what you actually get from a higher education in America today.

-Steve Forbes

Editor in Chief

Forbes Magazine

For years various periodicals have rated American colleges and universities. Any astute observer of the higher education scene can see that the mission of the academy is in disarray.

One estimable observer of the higher education landscape, John Howard has been arguing for years that the academic emperor has no clothes. In searing words and careful analysis, he makes his case in America's Best Colleges! Really? It is a statement upholding the best of traditional purpose of education: the training of each generation in how to live responsibly in their own society. John Howard documents the growth of the radical influences that displaced the educational philosophy that served America exceedingly well for centuries. Religion, family and patriotism are some of the casualties of this transformation.

-Herbert London

President Emeritus

This book is a godsend for prospective college students - and their parents. Before investing (or borrowing) tens of thousands of dollars for a college education, perhaps they should "look under the hood." In this groundbreaking work, Dr. John Howard provides the roadmap, explaining how and why most of what passes for "education" these days is simply headed in the wrong direction.

For more than sixty years, John Howard has dedicated his life to the defense of moral education, a requisite for the survival of a free society. Because he recognizes the critical role of the home as the child's first classroom, Dr. Howard anticipated early on the damage that the sexual revolution and the breakdown of the family would wreak on the culture. With that in mind, he founded the think tank that conceived and now sponsors the World Congress of Families, a unique gathering that has had a significant and salutary international impact. This book offers indispensable insight that will change forever the way you think about "the college of your choice."
