Here’s Scott Adams on How To Get A Real Education:

I understand why the top students in America study physics, chemistry, calculus and classic literature. The kids in this brainy group are the future professors, scientists, thinkers and engineers who will propel civilization forward. But why do we make B students sit through these same classes? That’s like trying to train your cat to do your taxes—a waste of time and money. Wouldn’t it make more sense to teach B students something useful, like entrepreneurship?

It is the article equivalent of the movie Taare Zameen Par, where anyone not perfect in one field is assumed to be perfect at some unknown field.
