Global Initiative Seeks to Transform Schools By Teaching Empathy – Education – GOOD

Strong academic skills aren’t enough to guarantee success for 21st-century students. Now, one group is looking to broaden what our children are taught.


Ashoka Changemakers, a nonprofit that provides tools and resources to help people improve their communities, is looking for entries for “Activating Empathy,” a competition seeking to spotlight and support smart ideas, programs, and learning models that build students’ abilities to collaborate and communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, and respect multiple perspectives.
