New York Magazine – The Junior Meritocracy *New Illustrations*


These editorial illustrations are based on a New York Magazine article titled “The Junior Meritocracy.” It was a great article that addressed the issues involved with testing our children for advanced placement in schools at 4 years of age. It revealed the problems with testing at such early ages when a child’s IQ is not stable and certainly not permanent.


“The kindergarten-admission process has always been about openly judging a 4-year-old and secretly judging the parents’ wealth, connections, and likeliness to give.”
