Thousands of high school students apply to America's top universities every year, hoping for a world-class education. But that education isn't what it used to be and it comes with some shocking extras.
For a glimpse into America's future, look no further than its college campuses: American higher education is in moral and academic decline, so says 2009 Yale University graduate Nathan Harden.
Harden has written a new book on what he encountered during his time at the university. It's called Sex and God at Yale: Porn, Political Correctness, and a Good Education Gone Bad.
Harden says Yale's highly publicized "Sex Week" is just one example of the moral crisis affecting American higher education.
During Sex Week, porn stars and sex industry CEOs are invited on campus for a marathon of sex-related film screenings, seminars, and product demonstrations--all sanctioned by the university as "sex education."
Other universities have followed suit and now offer their own versions of Sex Week.
Harden said this sex-saturated culture underscores the loss of purpose that permeates academia today. He points out that extreme agendas and single-minded political correctness have left us with universities that seem to no longer know what is or isn't worth teaching in their classrooms.
The book is graphic as it explains what kind of hard core stuff young students are being exposed to on their campuses. What should parents do?
