Officially Brain-Dead

I just finished reading over 100 pages of text for my next paper for my graduate class. Now, my brain is officially dead. I have an I.Q. of over 120; I'm an excellent reader; and I could decode every word, but I still feel like I could have done better at reading an astrophysics text than the numerous treatise we were assigned.

Honestly, it's no wonder there is such difference in the quality of education given around the country. Here we have two adult men who have been arguing for over twenty years the validity of media vs teachers in the delivery of material that will cause students to learn. Now I'm supposed to write a paper about it, choosing which one of them is right!

Isn't there something inherently wrong in the fact that I'm counting days until this graduate class is over?
