Where is the fairness?
My son graduates high school this year. While he is an exceptional student and leader, he will most likely graduate third or fourth in his very skilled class.
The student who will graduate number one in his class will attend Georgia Tech. His dream was to attend MIT, but he was not accepted.
The student that will graduate second in this class is attending MIT. His grades and test scores are lower, but he was accepted at MIT, Stanford and Harvard. He is a great kid and deserving, but so is the boy that is gradutating on top.
There is one differnce in these students. Care to guess what it is?
