Promote equality - ignore your kids

Powerline comments on something burning up the internet - an Australian reporter wondering if reading to your children promotes inequality.
The evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don’t—the difference in their life chances—is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don’t,’ he says.
This devilish twist of evidence surely leads to a further conclusion—that perhaps in the interests of levelling the playing field, bedtime stories should also be restricted.
Never knew those times reading "Goodnight Moon" would be hurting civilization.
