Falske negative

Hvordan skal man undgå at denne historie gentager sig? Kan vores uddannelsessystemer hjælpe de dygtige studerende, der har brug for en anden slags hjælp?

Her er den kendte historie om Albert Einstein, lånt fra

Et uddrag af texten (men titlen, ” … The Story You Don’t know”, er nok lidt misvisende, de fleste ved i dag at Albert Einstein i sin ungdom havde problemer med at komme igennem uddannelsessystemet; efter uddannelse fik han ikke forskerjob, men tog, for at underholde sin familie, job i et patentkontor; han sagde selv at det at sætte sig ind i de forskellige opfindelser var en glimrende intellektuel øvelse):

At the patent office, Einstein would quickly complete his work and spend the rest of his time thinking about some of the unsolved problems of physics. In 1905, Einstein published his first paper on the photoelectric effect. He had thought that this paper would bring him to the limelight. But, the scientific community completely ignored this paper that came from a patent clerk. Interestingly, 16 years later, Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics to research the photoelectric effect.

(Min fremhævelse.)

The most important thing that we can learn from Einstein is that no matter what, we should never give up. Despite all those difficulties and rejections, Einstein never stopped doing what he loved.

Der er noget at leve op til. Måske mindre kan gøre det.
