4. The real problem is for the students who need the structure and can't operate well in a chaotic

environment with people talking, taking phone calls, texting, eating, walking around the room, and otherwise disturbing any chance of a routine.

And of course, you can coast for a while on previous knowledge, but there is going to come a time when you will really need to know how to closely read for meaning, take efficient notes for recall without having to do the whole sequence again, and learn how to work with other people.

The idea that results can be divorced from process is stupid, really.

Process is all we have in the end, because simple "facts" change often in our lifetime as new analyses are done, new discoveries made, more curious questions answered. I give this program three years at the most. It'll take a decade to straighten out the mess it leaves.
