Nobody’s average

Schools are designed for the “average” student, but nobody’s average, says Todd Rose in a TEDx talk.

Rose dropped out of high school with a 0.9 grade point average, married his pregnant girlfriend and worked stocking shelves for $4.25 an hour. He went on to earn a doctorate at Harvard; he’s now a lecturer at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Rose runs Project Variability and is the author of Square Peg: My Story and What It Means for Raising Innovators, Visionaries and Out-of-the-Box Thinkers.
