One of the nation's top quants argues at the Department of Education that remediation toward proficiency is the wrong focus for American schools. Gallup's research suggests that successful people (including teachers and students) focus on finding individual strengths (not deficits) and then invest disproportionate time and energy on developing those strengths to a high level. Busteed says, "The most successful people are NOT 'well rounded,' but their teams are." We should focus on talent development and cultivating what George Siemens calls "connected specialization."
