INTRODUCTION TO THE CURRICULUM

The world is changing, and education should too!

Kaplan has a commitment to social justice and equity through education. In fact, the organisation was founded on the principles that education should be attainable by all and should provide opportunities to those students with the highest aptitude for learning, regardless of their background. Kaplan is committed to working on projects that supports disadvantaged communities through programs that bridge schools and university.

 

Since 1938, starting as a tutorial school in the basement of Stanley Kaplan’s family home in Brooklyn, Kaplan has championed innovation. By continually responding to student needs and readily adapting to fill gaps in the market, Kaplan changed what was thought possible in education. Kaplan is now a global private education company—global in every sense of the word.

 

This partnership provides a unique opportunity for Kaplan together with the Founder of the Kindness Factory, Kath Koschel to work together to contribute to the well-being of students through the Kindness Curriculum. This resource will enable students, teachers and parents to engage as learning communities to embrace kindness and gratitude as core concepts that underpin universal and global learning, community capacity building and health and wellbeing. The curriculum model leverages Kaplan’s existing global educational presence and has a strong emphasis on an experiential education approach aligning with Kaplan’s pedagogical approach.
