School Systems Embracing Goal Setting

I read an interesting article yesterday...

The headline was...

"Making Kids Work on Goals (And Not Just in Soccer)"

Some excerpts...

"A student's ability to set and achieve realistic goals is linked to higher grades, lower college dropout rates and greater well-being in adulthood."

"Yet a majority of grade school students lack faith in theirability to reach their goals, according to a survey of 642 students by Gallup"

"Sadly, only about 42% of kids ages 10 to 18 are pursuing goals!"
