Quotes

"The bones are very good but the building is dated" Macrino said of the Uncasville school that was built to house 700 students in 1967
The school is at risk of losing its accreditation if the city does not "construct a new building, resolve all existing facility issues ... or decentralize the city's schools into an all-magnet school district to be sited in appropriate facilities" a NEASC official wrote in a letter earlier this year
Welcoming Michaud, Jannah Hotels & Resorts CEO Nehme Imad Darwiche said: "We are very proud to announce the joining of Virginie Michaud to our team, the talent she brings with her will be a great asset to our company and our project developments in particular."
I noted that Christian schools "can bow down to the same idol [as secular schools do]. Unless they offer certain courses and meet certain guidelines, they will lose their accreditation, and if they lose their accreditation, they will lose potential students, and their degrees will not be recognized by other universities, and then that will make Christian education look bad. How so? Because the ChristianChristian college failed to live up to the standards of the state. But why must the state (or accrediting agency) set the standards? What if that school has a unique purpose and function? What if it needs to major on things the state considers minor and minor on things the state considers major? Why must it conform To offer degrees, of course! This too is idolatry."
