Caring School Leadership


I find it particularly sad that anyone felt they had to research the importance of caring leadership.

Yes the focus is so much on academics even when research backs up that caring an empathy are related positively and significantly to academic success.I appreciated this blog very much. I have laid out what a caring school would look like in my book "Developing caring relationships among parents, children, schools and communities. Sage 2008. Also want to note that my colleague Dr. Harriet Heath has an awesome curriculum for K-12 called Learning how to care; Education for parenting. .
