Is failure the key to success?

Here's an interesting article in this weekend's New York Times Magazine about the efforts of two school administrators to promote the development of nonacademic skills, including self-control, social intelligence, and persistence. As Sam and I discuss in the book, these sorts of abilities are stronger predictors of success in life than IQ - and parents can do a lot to encourage their development. It's great to see schools starting to work toward the same goal.
