Equal Efforts

“Whenever we use the language of praise and blame, in this lumpy and uneven world that praise and blame is invariably distributed in uneven amounts. And for an egalitarian, such unevenness is always ‘unjust,’ or ‘unfair.’ Because it is unfair and because modern educators are driven by a leveling desire, believing that each student has a ‘right’ to the same results as any other student, something must be done about this unevenness. Whenever parity of result is denied for various reasons(usually related to how God made the world), something has to be done about it. Driven by envy, the language of ‘rights’ and medical excuses is commonly found in the mouths of our educators. But in the world God made, equal efforts do not result in equal results” (The Paideia of God, p. 20).
