The November issue of First Things has a must read article about the intellectual peril our society finds itself in. If you needed evidence of the value of an education like RiverTree's, full of ideas and filled with literature, please check it out. Also consider the book the author draws from: The dumbest generation: How the digital age stupefies young americans and jeopardizes our future. I have not read it yet, so this is not a recommendation. However, my copy is in the mail and I will be sure to let you know.
