How Children Succeed: Q&A With Paul Tough

In How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character, journalist Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most for success have less to do with IQ and more to do with character. He was kind enough to answer a few questions from our Research team, which is working on identifying quantifiable measures of successful social and emotional learning.

In this Q&A, he suggests it's a bad idea to include standardized measures of character strength in school accountability systems. Read the discussion and let us know what you think.
