Most parents inclined toward Christian colleges and universities prioritize spiritual goals over career prospects when it comes to their child’s education, a study has found.
The study, conducted by the Barna Group in collaboration with the Association for Biblical Higher Education, asked parents of prospective students to identify what they consider to be the goals or ultimate purpose of college education.
Most prospective parents primarily see college as a place for their child to determine their career path (70%), gain practical job skills (66%) and increase earning potential (61%), the study found. Spiritual goals, such as growing spiritually (35%) and learning about the Bible (20%), are generally low on the priority list, Barna found.
However, researchers found a significant priority difference between parents who are inclined toward Christian education and all prospective parents.
In contrast to the top goals among all parents, those inclined to Christian education have spiritual growth as their top priority (75%), followed by determining career path (63%), increasing earning potential (52%) and discerning God’s plan for their child’s life (49%).
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
