Indeed. Such systems (in the words of broadcaster Paul Harvey, I
believe), punish excellence and reward mediocrity. He said one of
the marks of a society is the way it treats its brilliant children.
For instance, US American society whines and cries when its
athletes come in second in some international competition (i.e,
look at the US reaction to losing the 'fastest man' title), but it
doesn't care or even know when its math students come in 14th on
some international math test. (This illustration is currently
running on a "stay in school" radio advertisement up here.)

I think this tells us where society's priorities are.
