  2. 2. What is the Right Stuff? What is the "right education" young people need to prepare for the jobs of the new middle? -TL Friedman says in his book "The world is Flat" : "It isn't specific courses you should take but rather certain skill sets and attitudes." He focuses on Four that are important to anyone seeking a pathway to the new middle.

CQ + PQ > IQ That is TL Friedman's way of explaining that when the world is flat, curiosity and passion for a job, for success, for a subject area or even a hobby are so much more important. So be passion with what you do; and be curious about new things and you will be on a great path to success.
  6. 6. "Give me a kid with passion to learn and a curiosity to discover and I will take him or her over a less passionate kid with a high IQ everyday of the week" - TL Friedman Children who are passionate to learn are more likely to grasp new things faster than those kids with higher IQ's but have no curiosity to learn.
  7. 7. You Need to Like people - If students feel comfortable in the classroom and feel wanted and liked then they are more likely to learn. Teachers must learn how to teach children to like everyone.
