We all would agree that parents who try to engineer equity (i.e. equality of outcomes) among their children are abusive, right? Demanding that a child excel at math and play the violin like her sibling or learn to read at the same age is wrong. Children are different, even when they are born in the same family. Even identical twins don’t have the same interests and talents.
So if even parents, the people who have the greatest impact on who we become, are utterly incapable of engineering equity, does it make sense to expect schools or politicians to do it?
Equality of rights and opportunities is a noble goal. But equality of outcome is impossible and ridiculous.
