On today, journalist Paul Tough (@PaulTough) to discuss his new book, “Helping Children Succeed: What Works and Why.” How Paul’s research into education has developed in relation to policy debates in education. The relationship between poverty, morality, and learning. How stress influences learning, and what constitutes “toxic stress.” The importance of early education. How is success defined? What are the prospects for positive change going forward?
