We humans are all different.

Through our genes, our upbringing and our experiences we have acquired different talents and qualities; leadership skills, creativity, analytical talent, social and empathetic talent, entrepreneurial talent, organizational and structural abilities, etc.

Unfortunately, our society does not yet adequately appreciate these diversities.
One main reason for this is that society has chosen to evaluate a citizens usefulness, talent and qualities based on institutions' judgments.
In plain text: your characteristics lack social value unless they have been validated by an academic grade, diploma or certificate.

It is nevertheless a historical fact that the major stages of development in human history are often the results of individuals whose individual qualities - not their education - are what have changed history.

A society that would identify people's capacity based on talent, character and special interests rather than on educational level, would certainly save enormous amounts of compensation for the effects of jobs and labor shortages, exclusion, depression, retraining, xenophobia, inequality, etc.

The concept of the 'Diverse Society' aims to revise society's view on the value of the individual. The Western education system is only 250 years old and has so far not had as primary purpose to identify and stimulate the individual's characteristics.

Rather the opposite. The school, for economic reasons, must collectively distribute information at the same pace, depth of detail and subject matter for all, regardless of the differences in perception of the individual students, their special interest, maturity, divergent opinion, etc. Individual education with the current educational system is simply not affordable.

An optimized society - with a reformed view of citizenship - effectively identifies and allocates leadership talents to adequate positions, the serially creative to innovation and product development, those with social and emotional talent to key social community functions, the analystically gifted to the research spheres, etc.

People will always perform their very best in areas where their properties come to use. The educational system of the future will make even greater use as a source of deepening, broadening, specialization and expansion for the - through their characteristics - already motivated.
