Debbie Ruston - The Success Educator's insight:

People very often fear entrepreneurship believing it takes hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars to start a business. We hear about the greatest success stories and it can often create a misconception about who can succeed as an entrepreneur. Although people like Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs are all successful role models we can learn from, not everyone wants to create the level of business these individuals have created.

Not Enough Students Are Success-Ready | Education Reform | Scoop.it
According to a recent study, only 33% of U.S. students are success-ready. Here's how schools can foster students' crucial hope for the future and increase their overall well-being.

WEAC's curator insight, April 14, 2014 11:08 AM

Our increasingly structured education system is missing out on valuable opportunities for children to learn through play ... "Learning through play with 'hands-on, minds-on' approaches (not workbooks) is a powerful way forward. Play gives children space to dream, discover, improvise, and challenge convention. It’s crucial to social, emotional, cognitive and even physical development, helping them grow up better adjusted, smarter and less stressed.”
