It's deeply entrenched and made tougher to approach with its concentration on examinations at the end of each year.
Among other things, politicians love to measure and quantify things.
Final exams make the failure so much bigger. Incremental failures along the way with internal assessments are valuable. They allow the failures (and successes) to accrue more organically.
My students have recently received their results. I implored them to remember the feeling they had when they got them, whether it was elation at one end of the continuum, or profound disappointment at the other.
Let that feeling drive you.
And above all else - hold on tight to your dreams.
