No, absolutely not, the 1st kid will still have to put in the effort to succeed - let's not kid ourselves, that's a fact. All I'm saying is, while the 1st kid is putting the effort into his homework, the 2nd kid is putting the same effort in fighting the conditions that he has to face. Working at McDonald's after school, giving half his wages to his mom who's sick at home, while the dad is an alcoholic and is abusive. The other half of his wages probably go to his half brother who's addicted to cocaine/buying weed, etc, etc. The same effort, vastly different results. Kinda like the 2 kids running a marathon, the 1st kid is running in Nike shoes that PKM had bought for him, and the 2nd is running bare-feet. Who's most likely to win? All I'm asking for is an equal starting position.
