I don't have time to do the article justice (I might later), but this is the most hopeful thing I've seen in a long time, and I recommend following the link and watching the i, scientist video.
Admittedly, there's a largish chance that it will be dropped because it weakens too many people's status, but even if it just catches on a little, children will learn early that their minds are worthwhile, and a lot more good science will get done.
And it's not just the project in itself, but that adults thought to set up the possibility.
