Description

Explore how educators and parents can raise caring children who are responsible to their communities and committed to justice. Discover how the intense focus on children's happiness and achievement by many modern adults can undermine children's concern for others and the common good, as well as ways that schools and parents can promote care and well-being in children. Richard Weissbourd of the Making Caring Common Project presents. Original air date: April 19, 2017.

Richard Weissbourd is senior lecturer in education at Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and Harvard Kennedy School and director of the Human Development and Psychology master’s program at HGSE. His work focuses on vulnerability and resilience in childhood, the achievement gap, moral development, and effective schools and services for children.

He started a school in Boston and has advised on family policy and school reform at the city, state, and federal levels.
