Instruction as Punishment

A prime example:

Defensive Driving Classes, Online, in person, comedic, whatever . . . These are rarely fun, rarely interactive (except perhaps, in a classroom with a teacher with passion for the subject matter and an intereactive pedagogy).

But of course, the purpose is not instruction. It's punishment under the guise of instruction.

Made me think of the bumper sticker I almost bought for myself today:

OH NO! Not another Learning Experience!
