Olà Paul_1/4 ! (¼ of what? LOL)
I feel the same as you. I attribute this to the fact writing/language is what matter the most, because, in real life, this is what is mandatory. I mean, this is less handicapping if you are not good in mathematics, or scientific things. But if you can't express yourself orally, or by writing, then that is more or of a problem. So writing, and indirectly-speaking-is overall, what is the most important, and the basis of everything. This is why school is putting more efforts and attention on this.
Now, to be a bit sarcastic, I would say, that, being good in sports is surpassing your writing, or mathematics skills 😁
