Why outsourcing your education is a bad option?

Is higher education the best investment for careers? If so, students logically waste lots of time finding the perfect university. Then, they sit back and let the institution tell them what and how to learn. In other words, they get passive and less curious as leaners and become experts at outsourcing their education. Shouldn’t they be more responsible for their own learning experience? How can learning communities, real work experience and online educational platforms change this game?
