DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

The Ratio of Empathy

Pearls of Wisdom

The Ratio of Empathy


For over 30 years international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for Principals’ Training Center (PTC) professional learning experiences. Each day of every program begins with a “pearl of wisdom,” a “nugget of knowledge,” or a “gem of inspiration” from one of the participants. We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In this Pearl, Nico shares a story of a student experiencing the power of empathy when a school community was willing to embrace inclusion and move toward positive change.

Professional positions cited were the ones held at the time of recording. The positions and schools of those quoted may have since changed.
