Is there anyway not to overload students and professors with the stress of finals? We have lived out of this educational structure for so long that we never stop to think if this is the most appropriate way to learn. Maybe it was at one point, but is it still now? It may very well be, but because this way has been ingrained in students and the institution, we never stop to revaluate what is the best way to educate right now.
