Albert Einstein, a famous scientist, Thomas Edison, the man accredited for creating the light bulb, and Bill Gates, the father of Microsoft, certainly define the word genius for us. It’s not a mystery as to why the emphasis on math and science has increased over the years; math and science have been interpreted as the fundamentals of innovation and efficiency in a world where everyone is success driven: a.k.a money. However, somewhere in the process of confining genius within math and science with people like Einstein and Gates, other geniuses who excel in the arts and music have been ignored or demeaned. Students unable to live by this standard have often been categorized as incompetent and dumb and feel neglected at a time when they need nurturing. Suli Breaks, the rhetor of “I Will Not Let an Exam Grade Decide My Fate,” debunks the myth that education is the catalyst to a successful future.
