Life Isn’t Fair, But Education Should Be

Let’s take a moment to separate some ideas that get confused.   As a backdrop, let’s consider that there is inherent inaccessibility of education.There is a sentient that those working from disadvantaged positions should adjust—repackage themselves to find “success” working with a “thing” not designed for them.    It’s a fair argument that has as its evidence the continued expenditure of billions of dollars to push that “thing’s” lifeless body along in spite of itself. 
But it’s unfair to call education lethargic or fat or unresponsive without calling ourselves out in the process. Education can never be untangled from society. That’s where academia and corporate/industrialist thought gets you.
