Most every child, without formal training, learns to speak. By some miracle, in the US, after 12years of government schooling, many can't read the language they speak. Some might call this complete failure. Is ill literacy the intended goal?

It's better you do not waste their breath. You want a telescope with a diameter of Earth? Buy cheap. :D

Making the Impossible Possible.
Introduction
Founded in 1995, XPRIZE is the leading nonprofit organization solving the world’s Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself.  The organization motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital for the benefit of humanity. 

XPRIZE conducts competitions in five Prize Groups: 
Learning; Global Development; Energy & Environment; Life Sciences; and Exploration (Ocean and Deep Space).  

Prizes won include the $10 million Ansari XPRIZE for private, suborbital space flight; the $10 million Progressive Insurance Automotive XPRIZE for creating safe, affordable, production-capable vehicles that exceed 100 MPG energy equivalent (MPGe); $1.4 million Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE for solutions to speed the pace of cleaning up seawater surface oil resulting from spillage; and the $2 million Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander XCHALLENGE for advanced rocket development. 

Active prizes include the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, the $10 million Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, the the $2.25 million Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE and the $2 million Wendy Schmidt Ocean Health XPRIZE.  To learn more about the XPRIZE, please visit http://www.xprize.org
