Article: I'm not a fan of all must be winners philosophy either

I don't get the philosophy that all have to be winners in contests. If a child wins a contest fair and square, he/she wins. The other children should be happy for the winner and try harder next time if they want to win themselves. I think the all must be winners philosophy breeds poor losers and entitlement and that is not the way the real world works. Do you get a new car because your neighbor does? NO.

I feel bad for the kids in this article and the woman who seems to have been fired unnecessarily. She sounds like the best person for her job.
