The Center for Human Potential and Public Policy (CHPPP), in collaboration with the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group, presented the Fifth Annual Lecture on Science, Technology, & Society featuring Paul Tough.
Paul Tough is the author of How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, and Whatever It Takes: Geoffrey Canada's Quest to Change Harlem and America. A contributing writer to the New York Times Magazine, he is also a member of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group's Early Childhood Interventions Network and a nationally-renowned speaker on education, poverty, and politics.
In his lecture-- "The Science of Success"-- Mr. Tough will explore ideas and themes from his new book How Children Succeed, in which he examines how character traits can help children overcome the constraints of poverty and narrow the achievement gap.
