Most Likely to Succeed – The Innovation Race

As mentioned in a previous post,  I m currently reading Ted Dintersmith and Tony Wagner’s  book “Most Likely to Succeed.” I’ll be posting meaningful quotes from the book. Dintersmith and Wagner emphasize that our education system focuses too much on trying to increase our international standardized test placement. But, and I agree, standardized testing, which really tests students ability to memorize words and other material they’ll never use again, is not what we should be worried about.
