Everything bad is good for you

The ever interesting Malcolm Gladwell writes on the Flynn principle, which I was thinking about blogging yesterday (and would have if it hadn't been at the subscription-requiring New York Times). I especially like the part where he points out that homework is often (not always) useless. There are definitely some lessons here for higher education, and much of this actually goes back to what Dr. Summerlee was talking to us about a few months ago.
