#1 He must be smart as he was intelligent enough to stay away from Ivy League colleges.

#5 Would Boeing currently be described as having an excess of Ark-B types in decision making roles?

#8 He'll be pushed to his limits, and hopefully be a great success as an adult, but he's missing a lot by skipping over his childhood and normal college experience and that's kind of sad.

#9 ...yeah, like being stupefyingly kept at a grade level based upon age rather than ability that our public school system seem so bent on rigorously enforcing.

#10 Not sure I'd want somebody like that bored, frustrated, and receiving a public school education - when he isn't waiting for his classmate to pull the crayon out of his nose.

They'll wait until he is old enough to realize he's racist then they'll shame him for it.

#12 The boy will be fine. From the article:

However, his parents were eager for him to have a more holistic college experience at Georgia Tech.

They also want to make sure that Caleb learns important life lessons outside of the classroom.

'We want to make sure that when he is an adult, he’ll make a great husband, a great father, a great friend,' the couple told CBS this morning.

Mom Claire has a Master's degree in education, while dad Kobi is an IT salesman.

While most parents are still helping their 12-year-old children with homework, they are no longer able to help with the complex assignments Caleb is completing.

'Both of us are not rocket scientists,' Claire told earlier this year.

'We had to learn there are other things that we can teach him about compassion, kindness, and looking for good in others'.

God bless this family for raising such a wonderful young man.

Wishing him a long and happy life with a successful, useful career and children who will be raised as well as he was raised.
