Social Inequality

Inequality in noneconomic realms is also supported by the society's culture. Consider education. Students are expected to compete against each other for grades. This competition and the resultant inequality is such a basic part of American's perception of the educational environment and so ingrained that most students would recoil at the thought of a collective classroom effort, one that would reward high grades to everyone regardless of their individual contribution. --from my textbook Social Inequality.
