Indigo Data Trends and Insights: What the Numbers Tells Us

Indigo adds each school’s data into an ever-growing database of insights and information about how schools operate. As we work with more and more schools, it is revealing some surprising trends in education. Here are a few insights that are beginning to emerge.

The Educational System Rewards Specific Behaviors That Discourage Innovation

Despite strides to change this fact, the education system still demands conformity. Students who follow rules and don’t talk in class perform the best academically. This system discourages innovation and independent thought. Student and staff creativity scores are well below adult averages. Students with high creativity scores found few outlets in their educational setting to express and act upon ideas.  

Resources for Social Emotional Support are Scarce - Mental Health Issues are an Epidemic 

More than 1 in 5 students were identified from Indigo’s “Blue List” as needing extensive social and emotional support. Despite overwhelming need, there is little to no support as counseling staff is stretched and schools are hesitant to incorporate social and emotional learning due to academic time constraints.

Teachers are Behaviorally Homogenous - But Have a Wide Variety of Motivators and Skills

90% of teachers are behaviorally patient and steady, and only 1 in 7 are urgent and driven.  Given this environment, schools need influencers with a natural propensity for driving change. 

Over 25% of Students are Entrepreneur Candidates - But the System Marginalizes Their Potential

Students frequently identified as “difficult” by school counselors were high potential entrepreneurs. Because less than 5% of teachers have Utilitarian motivation, learning is generally disconnected from return on investment (ROI) and the real world. Schools also lack extracurricular activities and classroom subjects that appeal to entrepreneurs.
