How Children Succeed – Daniel Willingham

I finally got around to reading Paul Tough’s How Children Succeed. If you haven’t read it yet, I recommend that you do.

You probably know by now the main message: what really counts for academic success is conscientiousness (or its close cousins, grit, or character or non-cognitive skills).
