I always enjoy a good shell game, such as: Children fail in school because of character flaws. Character flaws are caused by bad parenting. The children who fail most come from impoverished homes-therefore, ending poverty will lead to success in school. Poor children fail because of bad teaching, therefore recruiting better teachers at higher pay will lead to success in school. But wait! Giving kids too much will also cause them to fail. They wont achieve the highest levels of success at Harvard if over-indulged. They will be miserable if not allowed to fail! Throw bunches of studies in a pot, add political correctness, stir well, strain out any logical connections, and there you have it.
