    Yes? Greater education has many benefits, not least this?
    It definitely helps (if everyone has access to good quality education), yes.

    really convoluted way of putting it. I don't even think what you said is true. Right now, education might make income distribution a little fairer, but more equal? I don't think so...if anything it makes things less equal as education allows for a wider range of incomes creating roles between the minimum wage jobs and being a top entrepreneur.

    How can a spectrum have things not unequal? Then it would only have one member and wouldn't really be a spectrum. SO the word "unequal" is unnecessary for a start.

    I think what you're trying to say is that education makes income distribution fairer, but I'm not sure how true that is.

    On an individual level, education will allow someone who is bright and hard-working enough from a poor background to raise their income, say by becoming a doctor, but then someone from a better off background loses out on that position as a doctor so it is still unequal.
