This coming school year most students will get ona school campus excited to learn, discover and be taught the needed skills to pass a state standardized test. Most do well on the test but fail in the test of life.
“This is a tragedy,” says Jamahl Keyes, student leadership trainer, Character development expert and top selling author. “It doesn’t matter how good a student does on a math, science or language arts test, if they do not have Character Development skills, they're not going tobe successful.”
