Einstein and school

Albert Einstein is widely considered to be one of the most brilliant people who has ever lived. The scientist redefined the way we think of space, time a mass and physics as a whole. But was Einstein always recognized for his brilliance? Apparently not. AS a child, Einstain did not starting talking until he was 3 or 4, and could not read until he was seven. He could not remember his own address or his own phone number, and he was unremarkable in school, barely passing. In fact, Einstein failed math and was told by his teacher that he would never amount to anything. When Einstein applied to the Muenchen Technical Institute in 1898, he was turned down because the institute said that he "showed no promise." Within seven years, he had formulated his theory of relativity.
