Re: On Teaching

Francis, you contradict yourself. If the primary instructor is the one who takes ultimate responsibility for everything and that primary instructor is within the student, then the teacher cannot take furll responsibility for "any action affecting the student, directly or indirectly." The teacher must be the primary instructor if he or she is to take full responsibility for any actions affecting the student.

On the other hand, if you are saying that we must all take full responsibility for all our actions, whether we are teacher or student, then it makes sense. If that is the case, then there is no need to make a distinction between student responsibility and instructor responsibility. You take action or don't take an action. You are responsible for what you do or don't do.
