Yes, I believe he would agree with that assumption. Aristotle didn't believe that people could claim "many" friends, and companionship is the most necessary ingredient. I believe that the relationship between and educator and student might be considered companionship, but you also have to look at the "context" of the friendship. There's a line a teacher should never cross as a student's friend; there's a mark of prefessionalism that should ALWAYS be adhered to. Aristotole's students were far different that our students today.
