A goal of education could be to create not just good minds but good people. This requires a fundamental rethinking of how teachers prepare children for the challenges of adulthood. It can start with “social and emotional” learning: helping students learn how to recognize and master their turbulent feelings and to acknowledge kindness as an essential ingredient of everyday life.
