I'd put this a bit differently:

Racket will teach you all the things that Scheme would have (i.e., it
would have the same contribution to your growth as a programmer), but
also much more because of the many things it has that Scheme doesn't
have.  You could stop at the "end of Scheme", or you can keep going.
