Don't feel bad odiakkoh I ended up taking 1st grade twice because I had some learning difficulties early on. Later they tested me (at age 13) and I had a High School Senior's reading level. I do have a College Diploma (in Office Machine Repair) though as I recall my teacher in College didn't learn his business in a College. He'd learned how to fix typewriters and such by actually working out in the field. I think that if a person is a reader they are likely to learn things that a non-reader might not. College degree's are good in that they prove you know what you're doing or talking about when talking to a potential employer, but there is a difference between knowledge and intelligence I think. Anyone can learn something, but not everyone can make the leap to application of that knowledge.
