Popular metrics don’t work for the majority

College President yesterday welcoming 120 prospective students (and 12 incoming freshman) and roughly 150 parents.

Reminded our Son yesterday that his early decision and acceptance (and incredible merit-based scholarship) in December puts him in a group of less than 10-percent of decisive and less-stressed students (and parents).

We (society) often use popular metrics.

Some High School students never make it in the top 10% of any “normal” and popular metric. This has the potential cumulative effect of inhibiting or eroding self-confidence.

The metric here (this post) is not one that gets talked about, unless you live with me.

Instilling self-confidence should be a top parental priority.
