PAUL TOUGH ON EDUCATION
The State of Education in Nebraska caught up with best-selling writer and speaker Paul Tough on March 19, 2014 when he was keynote speaker for the Midlands Mentoring Partnership's Youth Development Summit and Awards Luncheon at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.
As a contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine, Paul Tough has researched and written on education, parenting, poverty, and politics. He took time to sit down with us to discuss several innovative approaches to education that he has been researching for his books: "How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character" and "Whatever It takes: Geoffrey Canada's Quest to Change Harlem and America".
