KiyosakiKiyosaki expands on his belief that the school system was created to churn out Es / Employees... those A Students who read well, memorize well and test well... and not the creative thinkers, visionaries and dreamers entrepreneurs-in-the-making... those C Students who grow up to be the innovators and creators of new ideas, businesses, applications and products.

The path they can pursue with a love and true passion.
