Letter: Exams are helpful

To the Editor:

Savanna Flanagan wrote Nov. 27 about eliminating final exams, which she claimed were too stressful for high school students. I remember a teacher of mine who once told me that the purpose of the final exam was for the student to attempt to “pull everything together.” He said that this attempt was an important learning experience in and of itself. I still remember material from that course.
