    Interestingly Sir John Gurdon’s science teacher said of him whilst he was at school…
    “I believe Gurdon has ideas about becoming a scientist; on his present showing this is quite ridiculous; if he can’t learn simple biological facts, he would have no chance of doing the work of a specialist, and it would be a sheer waste of time, both on his part and of those who would have to teach him.”
    As an ex-teacher myself I have some respect for the profession but thank god some kids ignore the limitations some teachers put upon them.
