Should everyone in every country in the world have the right to get an the same education as someone in a first-world country?

In an ideal world, everyone would and should have right to a similar education.

However, the world is not ideal, and therefore this is not the case.

Education is extremely important in humanity, given that we are such an intellectual and curious race, as a whole. But for the excellence we have experienced in the past century, there has to be the un-educated and educationally deprived to keep our realistically ideal society ideal (I'll be speaking about America, in specific). In this, "realistically ideal" I mean ideal for the most possible people, or maximally ideal. It is the harsh reality that there has to be lots of what we refer to as "poor" lives to allow for man others to prosper in the middle class or high up on the social hierarchy.

Now, coming back to education. Education in our society today often correlates to better jobs and higher pay. For example, its not expected of a Harvard graduate to strive to be a cashier. So, if everyone was educated, everyone would expect higher pay and better jobs. Nobody would expect to work in a factory that creates various car parts. But these car parts create cars. And these cars are relied on by people like that Yale grad who needs to go to work at his bank 7 miles away.

In conclusion, I accept and deny your point. Everyone should have right to education, because that makes us equal is a certain way, but this is impossible so it shouldn't be attempted. Nobody in their right mind is going to try to fly from New York to Paris by jumping off the Empire State Building because it is impossible. With the world the way it is, nobody is going to attempt to make education available to every human because it is incompatible with our society and our way of thinking today.
