Audio: Paul Tough Talks About Failure
Sick of testing-and-accountability reform talk? Listen to this Paul Tough talk from Bowdoin College from earlier this spring (audio here).
His book is coming out in the fall, and I'm sure we're going to be hearing a lot about it from now until then. Called How Children Succeed, here's a bootleg cell phone camera shot.
The book is based in part on last September's NYT Sunday Magazine article about failure, resilience, etc (What if the Secret to Success Is Failure?). Beware, the audio quality is a little rough and the volume preset is pretty high. You might want to turn it down.
