"It really troubles me when people use academic achievement as a means of measuring intelligence. You’re basically saying that somebody who is able to successfully jump through hoops and be submissive to authority is the height of intelligence, rather than looking at somebody’s capacity to think independently and creatively. I think that you can tell a lot more about somebody’s level of intelligence by sitting down with them and having a five minute conversation rather than looking at some letters on a piece of paper which, essentially, are meaningless."
