Nurture right

Behavioral traits need to be developed right from childhood. While understanding concepts and inculcating skills are important for success of students, there is another, more important dimension that is often ignored in schools - behavioral traits. Behavioral traits are harder to define and therefore even harder to influence and control. The best schools typically are the ones that can change a student's behavior positively.
