Conquering the Freshman Fear of Failure is the headline of a column by David Kirp in today’s New York Times about a recent study.

It’s a good piece, though I think it’s missing a point that may be less important to the general public, but very important to educators.

I wrote about it in my original post when the study came out, Hopeful Study On Academic Success, But I Have A Question.

David Yeager, one of the study’s authors, was gracious enough to answer that question in Guest Post: Response From David Yeager To My Question About SEL, Race & Class.
