Success Skills and Schools
A simple question: is teaching children to be successful the job of parents?
The answer is, absolutely. In fact there is little doubt that much of the success we find as adults is in some way reflected through what we have learned as a result of interactions with our significant others (from interactions both good and ill).
However, there is another simple question: if students don;t learn these skills at home, where then are they to learn them. The simple answer is school.
Are our teachers equipped and capable to help students who do not have these critical skills?
Well, there is the complex question. What do you think?
