Central to the very idea of America is the principle that we are a nation of opportunity, constrained only by ability and effort. But over the last quarter century we have seen a disturbing "opportunity gap" emerge. Americans have always accepted inequality of outcome, that is, we accept that some people do better than others and earn greater wealth. But we have always believed in equality of opportunity: those who have talent and try hard will succeed. This central tenet of the American Dream seems no longer true or at the least, much less true than it was.
