Framework essay) Should government resources allocated for education be limited to people who have already demonstrated academic ability such as with good high school grades, or high intelligence testing scores (like the SAT and ACT), or should it be based strictly on need?

People even root for them to play poorly because they are tired of seeing them in the World Series.]
