What if... positive sum culture?

What if school were organized around helping students to be their best, not the best?

This would require a shift from a zero sum culture—after all, there can only be one “best”—to a positive sum culture.

What kind of massive potential human could we unleash with a positive sum culture, in which everyone is focused on being their best?


Each Wednesday we share a “what if” scenario. Consider it a provocation rather than a suggestion.
