Teacher is revered
or he is supposed to be
he may fail
or deliberately misguide
better not be blind.
She was taught to respect teachers, to obey them blindly, but from very childhood she often noticed that teachers too are partial and sometimes downright wrong.
Then with age she became skeptic, she gave every teacher respect when it came to behavior but in heart she placed only rare few, the ones she thought were worth the respect.
Then she read a quote by Buddha that asked his disciples to do exactly the same, not to follow HIM blindly.
Well she was quite happy that she was not arrogant but just skeptic.
