when it's the student's responsibility to learn

I found this article offering a refreshing break from the rigidities, compulsions of standard edu models yet not refuting them entirely... I think this is what's referred to when educationists talk about the critical importance of teachers in one's life... and then they take it too far and mess it up!

" At best, the guru can provoke desire to learn and moments of insight. But ultimately it is the student's responsibility to learn. The teacher is like a river that the student comes to when thirsty. It is not the teacher's responsibility to teach; it is the student's responsibility to learn."
