TEACH THE HABITS OF EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. A Joanne Jacobs post notes that credentials are not sufficient for success on the job.

It takes more than a high school diploma to earn a decent living. Workers with a high school diploma or less cluster in the lowest “job zone” with a median annual income of $12,638.

However, only 40 percent of jobs require college skills. The rest require communications, problem-solving, good work habits and ninth-grade academic skills. The problem is that many high school graduates lack the academic and “soft skills” employers demand.

I'll stop repeating on the same topics when the education establishment stops repeating the same mistakes.
