Everyone has read or seen the story in which a poor person became the hero/heroine and did well. Hollywood did not create this story line. Christians are very familiar with the story of Joseph (Genesis 39:2, KJV). Sold into slavery by his brothers, he became second only to Pharaoh in Egypt. He succeeded in all that he did because Joseph placed his faith and confidence not in his own knowledge and strength, but God.
When Pharaoh needed someone to run the country and administer their national food program, Joseph was there. There is no evidence that Joseph received any special, additional secular education or training to enable him. Of course he needed to learn about agriculture, animal husbandry, language, mathematics and many other things to succeed in Egypt. However, it was by faith and application of God-imparted wisdom and skills of rapid learning, perceiving the meaning of dreams and effective application of ideas and strategies that made Joseph a prodigious businessman.
The intent of this post is not evangelism, rather that in this Biblical history, God was the ultimate instructor, delivering and assuring for Joseph the retention of supernatural wisdom and very high level knowledge. Moreover, Egypt was the educational, financial and military power of the region, did not know how to address its challenges, nor had the ability to impart the requisite knowledge to its people.
From a secular perspective, you and/or your progeny want the best college education possible for your students. No matter how highly ranked the institution, it (and not the features-oriented commercial sales rating services) should be able to convince you that the setting, content and manner of delivery of “education” that the institutions deliver will result in high quality outcomes not unlike the “wisdom and knowledge of Joseph”. Otherwise, why bother to spend at least four years of life and a small fortune there?
