Jacob-BarnettA young genius whose IQ is said said to be  higher than Albert Einstein, is on his way to possibly winning a Nobel Prize after dropping out of elementary school and his special ed programs. From a young age, Jacob Barnett was very interested in Math and Physics. Numbers were his passion and he was getting bored of early grades of elementary school as they did not come close to challenging him. Finally, his parents made the decision to take him out of public school and special ed programs regardless of the fact doctors had diagnosed him with ASD.

 

“For a parent, it’s terrifying to fly against the advice of the professionals. But I knew in my heart that if Jake stayed in special ed, he would slip away.” Jacob’s mother.

Jacob’s incredible memory and mind allowed him to attend university classes after he taught himself all of high school math in just two weeks.He is currently on track to graduate from college by the age of 14 and it is believed his research into math and physics may begin to challenge some of the established theories in physics. This is an exciting prospect given many have touched on knowledge and devices that currently defy mainstream physics. The implications of such discoveries are endless.

Jacob Barnett is currently studying at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, ON where he and his family now live.[1]

This is just another example of how society can often leave kids behind who don’t fit the ‘mould’ of ‘every other child.’  Kids who are given labels because they don’t fit into the system are actually incredible beings, like everyone else, with the capability to participate entirely in advancing society in many ways. Key point being, you allow them to do what they want to do and are passionate about, and suddenly their “issues” are gone or dissipate drastically. One more reason why educating people in batches and teaching them near useless information is not going to cut it for much longer.

    Joe Martino forgot to mention that Jake’s parents moved the family from Indiana to Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, where he is a student among a handful gifted persons, at an institution created by the man who developed the Blackberry.

    Joe should also give credit to the Canadian magazine MacLean’s.

      Hey, can you provide links to the MacLean’s article? Would credit it but I haven’t seen it nor read it. Also did not know of the update in moving. Will add that in.

  2. Absolutely incredible story. Thank God his parents went on their own instincts rather than let the system make their parental choices for them.

    I used to be an A+ and an O student before that, up until the fifth grade. The principle had once came to me and told me in paraphrase that I’m at the top of the bell curve and I was setting their standard — this came out when she was displeased with me.

    The smartest thing I ever did was become a bad student in school/class clown. I noticed in fifth/sixth grade that the school system was teaching me to “think this way” and that really shocked me.

    To bad “normal” kids get downgraded in school before they are able to flourish in life. This child is lucky.

    Unfortunately my mother held me back as she said she didn’t like children learning too fast, saying they don’t have a proper childhood.
    My grades also suffered during the bullying I experienced at school. I didn’t like learning in a typical classroom.
