Kindness by @sheep2763 - 3 views

    "It may always be possible but life is busy and although I don't think that most people (including me) intend to be unkind they can sometimes be thoughtless rather than unkind. At school amongst other bits and pieces, I oversee the School Council. Our School Council consists of children from Y1 to Y6 and at a recent meeting, they brought their suggestions as to what we could do to make our school even better. They came up with several suggestions including Reintroduce Random Acts of Kindness awards Reintroduce Headteacher awards"

No Name-Calling Week: Cultivating Kindness and Playgrounds of Respect | Edutopia - 16 views

  • They recognized that the only real solution for the "bad stuff" was building a solid foundation of the good: the empathy, connections and healthy relationships that create effective learning communities and bolster individual happiness and success. Accountability and amends are key, but discipline, punishment and "zero-tolerance policies" are not the answer.
  • This approach to learning benchmarks students' development of empathy and understanding of others, their ability to form positive relationships and demonstrate effective approaches to conflict resolution as well as other critical qualities.
  • No Name-Calling Week provides a critical opportunity to bolster the empathy and understanding that underlie respect of others from the earliest years and evoke the joyful sounds of all children as they play on playgrounds of respect.
    Not zero tolerance, but rather full inclusion.

  • Supporters for Klein quickly rallied around the 23-year school district veteran, raising more than $99,000 early Thursday in a campaign on “She doesn’t earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Lets give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!” the campaign urges. A Facebook support page called “Kindness for Karen” had more than 2,000 "likes" late Wednesday. “I wanted to make sure that she doesn’t lose faith,” the page’s founder, Kendra Fee, told the Daily News. “There are way more people who have her in their hearts and want to support her, and there’s a lot more kindness in the world,” said Fee, of Rochester, who doesn’t know Klein.

      Bullying is NOT a DIGITAL problem; it's a HUMAN one. When will we collectively see this and act toward raising good citizens, not just good test takers???
