Dumbing it down

This is probably a true statement from this guy but you aren't doing anybody any favors by dumbing it down for them.

This is where these dumb rote phrasings originate that eventually are shown to be false and our teaching credibility is lost.

Material systems are not best understood via dumbed down rote methodology; they are best understood thru active learning methodology; and sometimes it is not easy to learn this way but you have to suck it up, get tough and grind it out... the left doesn't understand this.
