I suspect that the evangelical church retains a fear of higher education
inherited from the fundamentalist days of the 1920's. We fear that learning
(and thinking), unless carefully controlled, endangers faith. We want "safe"
schools where only the truth will be taught and where our children will be
protected and nurtured and equipped to make a living.

GRM: Of course thinking endangers faith, especially if what is being taught
is totally false and contrary to what one can see with one's own eyes. In
order to save such false teaching, the last thing one wants is to have the
students think.
