If school is about inspiring students to become passionate, life-long learners, you would think we would devise a concluding activity to our classes with this in mind.
Instead, we have final exams.
Instead of creating an environment that would empower students to want to learn more, we give them a test that has them desperate for it all to be over with. Instead of encouraging them to learn more, we chase them away.
This doesn't make sense to me.
