Re: College professors.
Yes, college professors are very interested in our research. Whenever possible, our goal is share that research with students in our classes. However, getting students to think beyond what is simply required for class and to share in our excitement can be very challenging. I'm sure that's a generalization, but then again so is your classification of professors.
You also state that professors are intent on indoctrinating students in our class. There are probably faculty whose classes feel like indoctrination at times when you are provided with a lot of new information - it can be overwhelming. However, you also state that what you really want is for them to provide you with the information so you can form your own opinions. Here's a simple question - how do you know the information you are provided is accurate and/or complete without working on your own to verify it? That's a classic line - give me information and I'll give you my opinion. Makes me realize why our elections turn out the way they do.

Is everyone's favorite Thanksgiving centerpiece really to blame for the post-dinner doldrums?
- Americans kill around 45 million turkeys every year in preparation for the Thanksgiving meal, only to blame our favorite centerpiece for the following food comas.
- Rumor has it our after-dinner sleepiness results from the tryptophan found in turkey.
- However, it is the meal's overall nutritional imbalance, not just the tryptophan, that make us want to leave the dishes for tomorrow. Or maybe the next day.
