Helping Some Students May Harm High Achievers

Really? It could be argued that a public school law signed less than 7 years ago is "largely responsible for our corrupt, money hungry and materialistic society today"?

On the assumption that, what, its effects began immediately after enactment and the world is ruled by people 25 and younger? (Since that would make them 18 and younger 7 years ago and thus just barely plausibly affected by the act.)

We'll leave alone the assumption that our society is more corrupt, money hungry and materialistic today than ever before.

In our efforts to "convince society that critical thinking and evaluation skills" are important, we might should start with yours, which seem to be nearly nonexistent.
