Learning Not Teaching
SEE HERE A worthwhile thing to think about especially when considering the rhetoric that makes the round about education. The student learns by applying themselves. The teacher provides an environment and a structure, but doesn't do any of the learning. The more demanding a teacher is the more likelihood that the student will put out the effort to learn. Instead we have a culture that thinks students should not be worked too hard, poor dears. The result is that they don't learn very much.
