|I also am beginning to understand why college students accept this stuff as fact. It's all written without any consideration that a lot of it is speculation. And, it only covers topics ever so slightly. I find myself asking why, why, why and how do they come to that conclusion? I wouldn't have asked those questions as a college student because I was more interested in getting through the hour of class, getting a decent grade, and getting back to the bar & my social life ASAP.|
Then perhaps you should actually take a class. You may recall that someone once told you (I hope) that class was for attending and learning things. Class is for asking questions. Class is for participation, for comprehension. Things that directly bear on education and, yes, what is best for the kids.
You could, of course, ask your questions to any of the professional scientists that post on this board (and many others). I don't hold out much hope that you will. I think it more likely that you will read (or skim) your textbook, ask yourself "why" like you did when you were a girl and just like then, bottle up your questions because you already know the answer or are still really more interested in going to the bar.
This place will still be here after it closes, I want you to prove me wrong.
