You’re so right that some will bring up the “fair” discussion. I always ask “is it fair that some students are breakfast and others didn’t? That some have two caring, supportive parents at home and others don’t? That some have big houses and others rent poorly maintained properties? That some students pick up on the math the first time and others have to spend hours longer to comprehend?”
Some will need time and some conversation to realize that the world isn’t equal – and what isn’t fair is the fact that we are so rigid in our ways.
