The easy trap

Who is a better student? One who asks good questions or one who gives good answers?

Most people agree that better students asks good questions.

Which students does our education system reward? The ones who ask good questions or the ones who give good answers?

Marks and grades go solely to the students who scribble in good answers in the answer sheet?

Why does this mismatch exist? Because it is easier to reward good answers rather than good questions.

When presented with a correct way and an easy way, we often settle for the easy way.
