Thanks a lot for highlighting this critical aspect of learning - which liberates education from a simply a means for earning a wage. It is also just as important to recognize these non-cognitive skills, for their importance in development of individuals as contributors not only as economic factors of production, but making society and life richer, more textured, less monotonous. And, in our development business, these should be seen as a key set of skills in disarming our worthy adversaries - skepticism, boredom - to name a few.
Perhaps, it would help a lot if we were to recognize that society(/ies) are more than markets and people more than just factors of production.
