Following this logic, then, the effort for equality in society is a push towards savagery. NCLB standards and the Race to the Top initiative have similiar goals in that they strive to make all students "college or career ready". But humans, in all of their natural diversity, will always produce a bell-curve of talents, some on the high end, some much lower. There will be those of superior intelligence and some dullards. Today's education system no longer recognizes the dunce. Studies tend to be pursued now at the lowest common denominator, rather than at the average — so as not to "frustrate" the more moronic.
