The Problem of Reading in an Age of Mass Democracy.
Diamond, Martin
Public Interest, n144 p73-84 Sum 2001
Argues that since ability is unequally distributed among humans, then education must be distributed unequally, with those capable of it receiving more, or deeper, or higher education than with those who are less capable. Discusses Alexis de Tocqueville's political science and analysis of inequality; democratic mediocrity; utopian expectations; and a Jeffersonian solution to inequality. (SM)
