Unconditional Caring

Here is a quote from Alfie Kohn. Kohn is a well-respected and well-known critic of the traditional American government run school system. He not only criticizes, but he offers much more emotionally intelligent alternatives.

Imagine that your students are invited to respond to a questionnaire several years after leaving the school.   They’re asked to indicate whether they agree or disagree – and how strongly – with statements such as:  “Even when I wasn’t proud of how I acted, even when I didn’t do the homework, even when I got low test scores or didn’t seem interested in what was being taught, I knew that [insert your name here] still cared about me.”
