Trisha will discuss The Children We Mean to Raise, a report developed by Making Caring Common that explores students’ self- reported values and the messages about these values that adults may unintentionally be sending. 

In her presentation, Trisha will share the research behind The Children We Mean to Raise report, discuss implications of the findings for parents and other adults, and offer recommendations for talking with your children about empathy, caring for others, and fairness. The presentation will also introduce Making Caring Common’s recent Turning the Tide Initiative, a collaboration among over 120 college admission leaders across the county, which seeks to re-shape the college admissions process to betterpromote ethical engagement and reduce achievement pressure. The presentation will conclude with an opportunity for discussion and questions.
