I agree. Often times, inquiry-based learning involves more discipline,
particularly self imposed discipline by the students.

But I also think the kind of discipline I alluded to about the Catholic
school piece is important as well. Listening to lectures, taking notes, being
actively involved in something which is not totally engrossing shows a very
high level of self discipline.

We do not exist solely to be entertained.
