I do the same, I teach the fast line from the get go. It is was most student want anyway. Further, this also forces them into learning more advance driving techniques earlier in the process (trail braking, throttle steering...).
As soon as they have caught onto the "line", I start working "off line" with them. I believe the better driver is the one who is able to make the best of whatever situation occurres, regardless of where he is positioned on the track at a given moment. It also makes for safer passing
