"Students crave emotional mentorship from their teachers that their parents can't give them. There's nothing wrong with that." 


Teaching is not an engineering problem. It isn't a question of transferring a certain quantity of information from one brain to another. "Educate" means "lead forth." A teacher's job is to lead forth the powers that lie asleep within her students. To put it in the language of computers, you can download all the data you want, but it won't be any good to you unless you have the software to make use of it. That software, the ability to operate on information-to understand it, to synthe�size it into new combinations, to discover and create with it-is what college is meant to "install." But here the analogy breaks down, for unlike actual software, the installation isn't quick and easy, and it certainly isn't passive.
