More than good grades and test scores? 11/180

Most Likely to SucceedMore than good grades and test scores? by Tony Wagner and Ted Dintersmith hammers home this point:

Students who only know how to perform well in today’s education system—get good grades and test scores, and earn degrees—will no longer be those who are most likely to succeed. Thriving in the twenty-first century will require real competencies, far more than academic credentials.

Agree or disagree? What can we do  in STSD to make sure our kids are more than good test takers?
