Positive education for life

From the World Government Summit:

"Positive Education is an approach to education that blends academic learning with character & well-being. Preparing students with life skills such as: grit, optimism, resilience, growth mindset, engagement, and mindfulness amongst others."

"Positive education is based on the science of well-being and happiness."

"There is a clear need for governments to take positive education – education that conveys both traditional, technical skills necessary for labour market success and critical socio-emotional or life skills that enhance well-being – seriously."

It looks like the Scottish government is ahead of the game.  How come ?
