Why Unconditional?

I am deeply motivated by the concept of unconditional positive regard in education. Alfie Kohn’s essay “Unconditional Teaching” captures the essence of unconditional acceptance in schools. I spoke about what unconditional positive regard means to me in an EdTalk at the MTA Summer Institute a few years ago. I write more about the idea here. To me, unconditional positive regard the the foundation for creating the schools we need for every student.
