Kiyosaki discusses his belief that the national school system was designed to do little more than churn out employees—'A' students who read well, memorize well, and test well—but not creative thinkers, visionaries, and dreamers who could be entrepreneurs in the making. He urges parents not to be obsessed with letter grades. Instead, he advises that they focus on concepts and ideas, and on helping children find their own special gifts, which could put them on a path they can pursue with true passion. He also highlights several 'C' students who grew up to be phenomenal successes—entrepreneurs who went on to hire 'A' students (attorneys, accountants, and other school-smart specialists) to work for them, leaving 'B' students to find unfulfilling work in government-type jobs. Not surprisingly, Kiyosaki coins his own definitions of what 'A,' 'B,' and 'C' really stand for as he offers parents and young people insights and tools for navigating an ever-changing business world.
