Description

Smarts matter. But other factors may play an even bigger role in whether someone succeeds. This week, we speak with Nobel Prize-winning economist James Heckman about the skills that predict how you'll fare in life. We'll also look at programs that build these skills in the neediest of children – and new research that suggests the benefits of investing in kids and families can last for generations.

Also, can I just say that I visiblely winced when the guest used the metaphor "drop them in the ocean somewhere" referring to AA kids and families... 😑

Classic victim blaming. Dump resources into any household and it will improve. The question is what created the deficit. Couldn't possibly be redlining or the systematic exclusion of poor blacks from the mainstream economy or wealth generation. No it must be that parents don't know how to raise kids. Unbelievable.
