NY Times Article
This article describes a prestigious NYC school. It seems to me that the headmaster has some interesting ideas. Cancel AP classes for the high school? Rethink the entrance exams for pre-K? Teach kids character? KIPP schools? Training them in fractions and algebra, but also perseverance and empathy?
Character Traits as defined by wikipedia.
The article goes on to discuss the success or failure of KIPP students in 4-year colleges. Further, it discusses Seligman's views of character development and its implementation at the swanky private school mentioned early in the article.
An interesting read.
