Abstract

The number one quality business leaders look for in employees is creativity and yet the U.S. education system undermines the development of the higher-order skills that promote creativity by its dogged focus on multiple-choice tests. Stephan Turnipseed and Linda Darling- Hammond discuss the kind of rich accountability system that will help students develop into the skilled adults that modern business and industry require.
