Our educational system is currently set up to favor people who can excel at reading and writing. But, the diversity of human minds includes those who have a natural aptitude for this and for those whom reading and writing are a constant struggle. In our collective stupidity, we force all people down the path to develop mastery of reading and writing skills. Instead, we ought to be spending more time uncovering the natural talents of every mind, whose talent might well be more suited for working with 2D and 3D graphics, animation, dance, music, or any of a thousand other things.
