    The Soul of Education: Helping Students Find Connection, Compassion, and Character at School

    • Parents and teachers everywhere want young people to feel connected, believe in themselves, and find joy and meaning in life. Yet public schools–whether out of respect for family beliefs or out of fear of lawsuits–generally avoid any time and attention to developing the spiritual lives of students. Anyone concerned about the root causes of drug abuse, teen pregnancy, youth suicide, and violence will be especially eager to explore this book’s framework for addressing the inner lives of students.
