    will vs would

    She said, "I guess with the current state where there's a lot of competition to enter university, parents take extra precaution - if a child is good, he can be even better."

    Noting the psychological impact on children who fail the entry tests to gain a place in private tuition centres, she added: "It will/would instil in the child a sense of belief that everything boils down to getting A's when learning isn't just about that."

    Which boldfaced verb is the preferred one?

    Thanks.
