I also recall reading that.  Although IIRC, boys and girls received very
different kinds of education, and neither received knowledge that we take
for granted - the Aztec number system was reserved to the priesthood and
was base 60 - essentially impossible to pick up through casual exposure.
Compare the Mayan system, which was obviously intended to be widely known
and used.
