Meritocracy snippet January 17, 2013

Posted by @Karen_Fu in change, education.

‘Being an academic elite itself is not a flaw. Getting full score for studies or being at the top tier of a certain subject area would deem one an elite. Being able to enter most of the NUS courses now is considered an academic elite. However, the flaw would be the idea that elites are the only best people to lead everything. That itself is wrong. Everyone has its ups and downs. Today you may be an elite. Tomorrow you may be a scum. A fine system will be one that allows anyone who has developed the level of competence to lead in their field of expertise. That’s meritocracy.’ — Karen Fu
