An education conference began in the nation’s capital today but it was not about standardized tests, national content standards, merit pay for teachers, or charter schools.
Educators, scientists, the Dalai Lama and others came together to discuss how to cultivate in students the qualities not normally given much attention in most schools: social responsibility, self-control, compassion.
