Yes! It's ridiculous that our education system was ever set up this way, let alone that it still is.
Leaving the comment of the person I pinned this from, cause it's awesome. "I was thinking about this quote today. I really do believe that every person is brilliant in some way. You just have to get out there and try things. Not everyone has to be a scientist or mathematician, but it's important to have a thirst for knowledge and to want to be great at something. Have ambition, don't sell yourself short."
Inspirational quote. I like a lot of Einstein's quotes, even if they're cheesy for a scientist to be using, but they really emphasize creativity and imagination as being a very important tool for advances in science. While textbook knowledge is necessary to have, without creative ideas and questions you won't get very far.
