SCHOOLS ARE DISCOVERING KINDNESS! THE RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS FOUNDATION AND DISCOVERY EDUCATION LAUNCH “DISCOVER KINDNESS IN THE CLASSROOM” – A NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP FOCUSING ON STUDENTS’ SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING SKILLS

Kindness starts with one. One person holds open a door. One person writes a thank you letter to a teacher. One person sparks kindness when another really needs it.

The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation (RAK), an internationally recognized nonprofit dedicated to inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others, and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, have teamed up to announce today the launch of an all-new education initiative, “Discover Kindness in the Classroom.” Available at no cost to classrooms nationwide, the program offers standards-aligned resources for grades K-8 that teach important social and emotional learning skills, and stimulate thoughtful conversations between educators and students about the importance of kindness in their daily lives.
