Research shows that students who learn in an environment of kindness and caring live happier lives and enjoy higher test scores, learn new skills at a faster rate, and are overall happier. “What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?” said philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau. “We think too much and feel too little,” mused silent movie legend Charlie Chaplin. “More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness.”
