Do you agree with the website owner who said posting term papers is improving education by forcing professors to create more challenging assignments?

I agree that term papers are not always the best sort of assignment for helping a student learn to do research and organize and write a lengthy article. One would hope that such an effort on the student's part would come naturally from a curiosity and desire to share her/his findings with others. Such curiosity is rarely encouraged in school or anywhere else.

It seems to me likely the website owner is being self-serving, rather than showing a genuine interest in improving educational practice.
