Richard Weissbourd, Ed.D
Senior Lecturer in Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education
Promoting Moral Development In Schools
How can schools inspire and teach children to be moral — to care about and take responsibility for others, to think clearly about and pursue justice, to sacrifice for important principles? In this session, Dr. Weissbourd will look at concrete strategies that schools can use — in an era of intense achievement pressure — to promote both morality and emotional resilience in students.
