The Making Caring Common Project

The Making Caring Common Project at the Harvard Graduate School of Education seeks to place moral and social development at the center of conversations about raising and educating children, and seeks to strengthen the ability of schools, parents, and communities to support the development of children’s ethical and social capacities, including the ability to take responsibility for others, to think clearly about and pursue justice, and to treat people well day to day.  The Making Caring Common Project is currently focused on three primary, overlapping bodies of work: (1) a school-based data driven improvement initiative, (2) resource and intervention development, and (3) media and messaging strategy development and dissemination.
