    You might enjoy looking up the origin of “pedagogue.” That exercise may help set you on the path to becoming an “autodidact.”

    Great song. I just found out it was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood.

    I had a teacher like that once.

    He was turned down for tenure.

    Paige is learning a valuable lesson: Do as “da man”say, don’t be a rabble-rouser or independent thinker.

    American schools are run by Liberal PC morons … which is why American kids rank about 25th in education .. well behind a lot of other countries. Sad …

    Is that Dilbert sitting in front of Paige? Sure looks like that might be him when he was in High School.

    “Lots of homework” – what teachers give when they are too lazy to teach during class.

    I think some people are missing the point here. You seem to think the teacher is being a tyrant who doesn’t want the students to have independent thoughts on the subject. I see him as a man desperately trying to get distracted teenagers to pay attention and get genuinely interested in the subject. And I think his definition of biology is as correct as the textbook definition, better even.
    Also, the idea that you need to learn, then unlearn, to find the truth is a valid one, but seems more appropriate to history, sociology, or economics than basic biology.
