The Cult of Success


"Over the past few decades, success has too often been defined as whatever we can see and measure, be it individual wealth or corporate profits, school test scores or student rankings, Facebook friends or Twitter followers. As Senechal writes, "In research studies, newspaper articles, and general education discussions, there is far more talk of achievement than of the actual stuff that gets achieved." Such talk has resulted in a cult of success that, in its preoccupation with image, money, and power, has distorted what it really means to succeed."
