Your idea is correct in their minds: The student is the passive reciever of knowledge, with the teacher the active provider. It is not impossible to break, but improbable; it’d be breaking a likely 12+ years of public education, which amounts to “Sit down, speak when I want you too, and I’ll judge you when appropriate”.

Are full of passionate intensity.”
