Schools of Dreams: Rand

So, the teachers run this experiment paralleling Rand's Anthem, dividing the kids into castes. It's amazing how the students react. During the discussion before the experiment they all talk about how it would suck to be labelled, to be stuck somewhere, to be judged. Yet, during the experiment, when the "useless" have to weed around the school, they rebel, and during the following discussion they make a comment like "That's the gardeners job" showing how elitist they are. That on one hand they can say they wouldn't like the discrimination, but they don't yet see that they are the ones who discriminate.
