We hardly know the limit of intelligence of individuals who can fruitfully contribute to science in one way or another if they are given the proper training including graduate training as assistants, as supervised or semi-independent researchers, as team members.

Education and training for all children to be equal in opportunity in all schools, colleges, universities, and other institutions of training in the professions and vocations in life; to be regulated on the capacity of children to learn, and not on the ability of parents to pay the costs. Training for life's work to be as much universal and thorough for all walks of life as has been the training in the arts of killing.
