December 10, 2007



Sadly, it's all too common for many of today's college students to view their degree as the "hoop" they must jump to get a (rather) big and respectable paycheck. Too many of my students seem less concerned with actually absorbing material, interacting with it, making changes to it, being CREATIVE with it than with doing what they think they have to do to get a "good" grade. Sad. I keep waiting for the class/the year that it all changes.

In the meantime, I'm glad that you, Ryan and Kenja as well as your NYC friend, have gotten the point of a formal education, i.e. that learning never, ever stops, it gets more interesting, more compelling, more exciting.
