Consider the following:
"If we lower the standards we lower the results, so if we raise the standards we raise the results" (in passing this is about education).
I have the impression that there is a fallacy in this - even if I assume the first part of the inference, I suppose we could raise educational standards and just watch everybody fail miserably), but I cannot phrase clearly why/how this is a fallacious claim.
Am I right? Is this fallacious and if so, is there a technical term for it?
