I am disappointed in the attitudes of many. I am disappointed that America, according to some, has become a place not to have the opportunity to seek a dream, but a place where people ought to be force fed the dreams of posperity and knowledge. Yes, knowledge, this post actually has little to do with politics. In fact, I am most disappointed with students who, even though in upper level classes, argue with their teacher for not telling them what they need to know. I say to them, the job of a teacher is not to tell you the answers, but to give you the tools to find those answers and in upper level classes, those tools ought to be rather minimal.

People, use sense. Do what you need to do to do well in class and to know the material. Do not simply stop and argue because you feel the teacher should do it for you. Do it yourself.
