School & Experts Put Genius Boy In Special Ed.

Now He’s Free & On Track For Nobel Prize

". . . A young genius whose IQ is said said to be higher than Albert Einstein, is on his way to possibly winning a Nobel Prize after dropping out of elementary school and his special ed programs. . . his parents made the decision to take him out of public school and special ed programs regardless of the fact doctors had diagnosed him with ASD . . .

This is just another example of how society can often leave kids behind who don’t fit the ‘mould’ of ‘every other child.’ Kids who are given labels because they don’t fit into the system are actually incredible beings, like everyone else, with the capability to participate entirely in advancing society in many ways. Key point being, you allow them to do what they want to do and are passionate about, and suddenly their “issues” are gone or dissipate drastically. One more reason why educating people in batches and teaching them near useless information is not going to cut it for much longer. . ."
