Is knowledge, really simple? Or really not?

In the question of ‘if I believe if knowledge is simple’ I would tend to partially agree on both sides of the matter. Knowledge is simple in the sense that you can read a book, write a paper on that book and know the contents of the book. That is a simple step system to accomplishing knowledge. To teach someone knowledge can also be very simple, you give them the resources, teach them how to use those resources, and then apply their knowledge to the situation using those same resources. But when such situations become more complicated I believe that knowledge also becomes more complicated with that situation. For example, when teachers teach you things, yet don’t apply any context or real life situations to the content they are teaching, the knowledge doesn’t hold much meaning. But when teachers force the student to apply their knowledge into their individual fields and assuming those fields require complex knowledge applied to them; those students would most likely have a more successful approach because their knowledge wasn’t given to them in a simple fashion. So in short. Knowledge can be simple, but how knowledge is given to people really depends on how they use and relate to the situation at hand more intently.
