When being remarkable is better than being excellent

This happened in 2013. I was voluntarily teaching a class of 70 students. They had come from Dzelukope R.C., where I was holding the classes, Vui Zion Basic, Tegbi Afedome, Tegbi E.P. and some other junior high schools.

I was teaching Mathematics for free, and this was after I had organized pep talks for the various schools on how to prepare for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations.

In one of our sessions, I gave a question which they all answered; some got it wrong, some got it right. Then I told the class that the people who got it wrong were in a more favourable position to benefit if I explain the question and answer further, and that I was happy they got it wrong. One sharp guy who got it correct (he’s now in his final year at Ashesi University) asked me why I said that. Why was I enthused about those who got the question wrong and somehow not appreciative of those who got it right?

The answer I attempted giving him, which he failed to appreciate at the time, is the subject matter of this post.
