I believe in college/graduate school, it is the students' responsibility to study and learn, they are their inner drive to further explore and establish themselves intellectually and spiritually.
Unlike K-12 education, where teachers cultivate wholeheartedly for the character, good learning habit of the students, prepare them to college/society. While in higher education, the role of professors are guidance and advisors, teaching and research are compliments of each other, their basic and applied research will fundamentally change the society in the long run.
Higher education and K-12 are totally two different stages. Please make the distinction. Thank you!
