No Child Left Behind?

Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena (Counsels and Maxims, The Ages of Life, tr. T. Bailey Saunders):
A man's intellectual as well as his moral qualities proceed from the depths of his own nature, and are not the result of external influences; and no educational scheme -- of Pestalozzi, or of any one else -- can turn a born simpleton into a man of sense. The thing is impossible! He was born a simpleton, and a simpleton he will die.
