Failure in Education

Failure is one of the least understood concepts in education. We learn from failure! In fact, in Engineering we study failures - there's an entire branch of Engineering called Failure Analysis. Unfortunately, we haven't figured out a way to embed the fail-learn-fail-learn cycle into traditional education. In schools, failure is a bad thing; it's something to be discouraged and avoided.
