Drilling students is not teaching, anyway. If students are having a difficult time grasping a math skill the teacher can't keep working on it until they get it, because the teacher has to stop and start teaching another subject. Everything has to be taught at a certain time. Good teachers hate this.
Well, at the same time, good teachers expect students who don't get it to put some of their own time into getting it as well. I agree with the rest of what you're saying. Teaching only for a simple set of questions on a test will not teach a student how to solve similar problems that are not directly on the test.
