A Voice of Sanity in Higher Education?

Professor Mike Adams has long been a favorite read of mine. His clear-headed discourse on various topics is a refreshing break from much of the clutter of the media, and even the blogosphere.

His current column, "Attention Surplus Syndrom" is a wonderful explanation of how colleges and universities should be conducting classes.

His explanation: My philosophy of teaching is so simple it can be summarized in these two sentences: I only care about learning and retention, not your yearning for attention. If students show their ASS in my class, they do not pass.

Are there any questions before we start?

You have to go read the column!


p.s. I have invited Mike Adams to be our next interview on "Pajamas Interviews".
