    We already massively undervalue academic and intellectual achievement as a society. Don't see anything wrong with trying to buck this trend.

    I think it's a good scheme.

    There are many opportunities and resources only given to kids who aren't or can't engage academically in a "mainstream" way.

    This is a little off topic, but given that I just wrote a lengthy post on 19th century American history, if anyone is interested in an academic debate over the role of education in improving society they may find the debate between W. E. B. Du Bois and Booker T. Washington interesting.
