We can do better.
The most pressing educational, economic, and social mobility challenges we face as a society all stem from a profound lack of understanding about individuals due to our unquestioned acceptance of the myth of average. Today, our institutions of opportunity, from education to the workforce, remain firmly rooted in the misguided belief that group averages are good enough to understand individuals, measure their potential, and nurture their unique talents. They are not.
At the Center for Individual Opportunity, we are committed to solving this problem. Leveraging powerful new insights from the science of the individual, we are working to change public mindset and transform our social institutions in ways that will nurture potential, expand talent, and ensure the promise of opportunity in modern society.
