Liked ATARs measure privilege, not academic merit, and it starts in kindergarten (ABC News)

I have accepted many scholarships and awards and I still wonder why people see the ATAR as a measure of merit.

It seems more of a flimsy contrast to justify the myth of meritocracy in an inequitable society. ATAR results measure socialisation or lack thereof, sorting young people by privilege or underprivilege.
