Finny Kuruvilla on modern educational goals

The people most likely to believe the higher education system in the United States is good are either liberals or educators. They see the liberal indoctrination and the focus away from preparing students for the world and have no problem with it. As long as they get people thinking the same way, their well-being and preparedness are secondary.

Finny Kuruvilla thinks differently and he’s doing something about it. He will be opening Sattler College next year with $30 million of his own money to fund it. The school will be geared towards conservative Christian students and is opening in, of all places, Boston. Kuruvilla graduated from Harvard.

One of his quips in a recent interview is quite profound:

“The whole notion of education has become generally confined to academic thought, not so much to developing of the whole person, character, and integrity.”

We’ll be watching this school closely once it opens.

    He’ll get as much support as Trump does from the RINO establishment. Good luck to him. I hope he can find more donors. He should have based it somewhere where it would be appreciated. Who is John Galt?
