All Mean and Women Are Not Created Equal!


  1. All Men/women are Created Equal, a lofty promise under the law of the land and I believe that all men/women deserve equal protection under the law but in truth it is clear, that all men/women are not created equal in physical, creative or mental capabilities What then must we do? If we assume that all can handle even the most challenging mental and physical activities we condemn a large portion of our society to failure. If we assume that none can or should do the more challenging physical and mental tasks then we condemn not our people but our society to mediocrity. Would it not be best then that we take people where they are at and move them forward rather than moving the two ends towards the middle. Politically if we expect or demand little then our attempts will be met with success because the least among us can be taught it and the best have already attained it. . Any society that believes that the equal treatment of un-equals is a just goal needs to read or re-read Harrison Bergeron or 1984.

About safrisri

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
