    I think the root of the problem in our educational culture is that people aim for grades instead of learning. A lot of people cram and do well on exams and in classes, only to forget half of the material the next year. I have been guilty of this in the past with classes. Over time, I’ve learned that it is much more satisfying to be interested and respect what I learn, instead of dreading the AOIs and worrying about my grades. Intrinsic motivation will go a lot further than being extrinsically motivated by a grade and GPA
