Because our education system revolves around memorization and regurgitating what you memorized on a test. Memorization capability does not equate to intelligence.
It's like the age old question, who is more intelligent, a doctor or an engineer?
I know doctors that wouldn't even know where to begin to change the oil on their car. Even if the engineer didn't know how to do it, they could figure it out.
