It’s OK if kids fail. That’s the thinking behind Bloomberg columnist Megan McArdle.
Instead of worrying about making mistakes, young people should be struggling and learning from the issues that plague them. It’s the only way, McArdle said, they can grow and help push America forward.
“America needs more bright, hardworking kids taking on challenging academic work,” McArdle said. “But it does not need them to learn that success is a formula — or a zero-sum game in which the race goes to the safest. In fact, that’s exactly the opposite of what we need — and more important, it’s the opposite of what those kids need.”
