More support for Mindset

Over the summer last year, our principal had us read Mindset, by Carol Dweck. He also assigned it to the parent community, hoping it would get them to start thinking about failure in a different light… looking at the opportunities it provides for growth, rather than as some sort of a set back.

In a community where so many of our parents are looking ahead to college from a very young age, character building can sometimes be overlooked.

This article in The Atlantic, How Middle School Failures Lead to Medical School Success, really supports the theories of Dweck, and bridges the connection for parents.

A highly recommended read.
