So what you’re saying is that freedom of choice and accountability assures inequity and different outcomes.Choice
This would accelerate inequity, kids from more productive home cultures would further widen the gaps.
The fallacy of that is that when people are being guaranteed an outcome by the government (graduation and a degree), some won’t work harder to achieve and society will suffer and decline overall, but a only few will choose to achieve better outcomes.
It’s the human condition.
Fortunately, in reality, if people aren’t guaranteed a minimal outcome, they will work harder to excel and achieve success. With the exception of a few, individuals will attempt to achieve to their highest level of success. The human condition doesn’t give us all equal talents and ability, so inequity will occur in a meritocracy, but the vast majority of individuals and the society as a whole will thrive and succeed.
So the question is, do will eliminate meritocracy to spare the few individuals b/c some will chose not to achieve or will cheat (commit crime) to the detriment of the vast majority OR allow the vast majority to achieve their highest level of success by giving them unlimited opportunity while a small minority will fail b/c they refuse to contribute to their success and society?
