Most likely to succeed...

Malcolm Gladwell asks "How do we hire when we can’t tell who’s right for the job?" in Most Likely to Succeed, found in the column Annals of Education from The New Yorker today.

Football and teaching...

To be honest, I always wondered if I'd make a fine teacher. Ever since I heard in my college educational psychology course at The University at Albany about the study, probably apocryphal, that proved an actor makes a better teacher than a subject specialist. Since I was more of an actor at the time, the story had some appeal. I'd like to know what others think of it.
