Averages that turn into policy result in a segregated society

Averages that turn into policy result in a segregated society. I remember it in school. My above-average – not fitting on the bell curve put me in the same “not fitting in” as the kids in the slow classes. Made me a ‘misfit” because I wasn’t “average”.

As education and government is relying more and more heavily on statistics and averages, public policy is being guided by these very same averages.

This is why it’s a dangerous line of thinking that you espouse. There’s not much margin when averages become law. The individual should be the primary focus, not the averages.
