Merit vs Mediocrity

As you near the end of your home school high school years and think about what is next, you want to focus on education that will help you be the best you can be, not just slid along.

In today’s political world, there is the tendency to “let everyone win” or “pass” regardless of ability.

There are reasons why this is not good.

Not everyone is going to be good at everything. Not everyone will get the same grade.   It is good to let natural talent and hard work rise to the top in any profession instead of treating everyone the same.

People, professionals that we rely on…airplane pilots, doctors, dentist, lab professionals, plumbers, electricians, architects, construction managers, mechanics, cooks, sanitation professionals, lifeguards, childcare workers, teachers, parents…whatever the field, we want a professional or someone who knows how to do their job well and in an excellent. We don’t want hire or pay someone or rely on someone to do a job we need to be done who doesn’t know what they are doing but who “passed anyway” because the school believed that equity …everyone getting the same result, or mediocrity…everyone passing…is a the way to go.

You don’t want to be that person in that system. For one thing, if you are hired to do a job for which you have no knowledge or talent, you could get yourself in a heap of trouble if the job turns out poorly. People and property could be injured or worse.

Be honest with yourself about your strengths and weaknesses. Don’t go into the wrong field. Believe in Jesus, ask Jesus into your heart, be born again, and ask God for direction in life. Become the best you can be in whatever field you choose. Use your talents well. Don’t be mediocre.
