Education Research: character education

Quotation from an article on the links between character education and long-term student success, in a very interesting collaborative research project between a fancy New York private school and a KIPP charter school: "Peterson [a psychology professor at U. Michigan] ... identified a set of strenghts that were, according to his research, especially likely to predict life satisfaction and high achievement. ... They settled on a final list: zest, grit, self-control, social intelligence, gratitude, optimism and curiosity."
