So, because some students do not have the perfect education, all other students must suffer?
Right, they pushed themselves. They did not need the sort of reorganization of education you suggest, instead, they needed their own determination. Such are good students. They strive because they care. The students who do not strive need these positive examples. The power of moral example is not to be taken lightly.
On the topic of paragraph 2.
1.Ah, but my Edisons are not the bright beacons of the educational system, but the failures. Have you ever had a dream and been told that you will fail miserably if you try? If so, I suspect that you wanted to prove them wrong, that you can succeed if you want to. Such is the way of Man.
2. I would like to add that a filter would actually most benefit our C-high F range students. Often, these students want to learn, try to learn from the top of the class, but the anti-stundents drag them back with negative influence. I am not suggesting the seperation of the intellectuals and the masses, but those who want to learn, who try to hold the image of the intellectuals, and those who are hell-bent on destroying their futures.
3. The power of example is quite prevalent to me, but if those who would be separated reject example today, what logic says that they will make an about-face the next day and the day after?
