You've heard many opinions, most of them telling you that you are wrong, but some that agree with you. Since you're not going to get any consensus here, and since you're not 1000% sure....my recommendation to you is to quit teaching your girlfriend and let a professional instructor do it.
So I should send my girlfriend to what? What type of training? MSF? As what the instructors say at the end of the class "Congrats you can now ride around a parking lot.". Send her to a track school? At the school she will learn to use the front brake....
