Well, I can appreciate your love for reading...heck I remember thinking that same thing when I was in school. Course, being someone who speaks the first thing I would think...I suggested the teacher just let us read all class. Here's the answer the teacher gave me... "I am here to teach you and you will do what I say when you are in my class. I am responsible for you and I went to college to do this. Now return to your seat and write me two pages explaining why you should not question your teacher."
