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.
