Ontario Principals’ Council Now Supporting Compassion Validation Study

8 days left to respond! International Study – Deadline Feb. 28

Click here to begin the surveyPrincipals, please forward to your teachers to respond. 

We welcome responses from K-8 teachers in the U.S., Canada and other countries!

The Ontario (Canada) Principals’ Council (OPC) has just come on board to support our Compassionate School Culture Validation Study. We heard from Dr. Joanne Robinson, Director of Professional Learning at OPC, that Ontario is “very interested in furthering compassion and well-being.”  This 12-15 minute survey measures teacher opinions regarding implementation of mindfulness, compassion, courage, equity, neuroplasticity, and cultural competence.

Paul Liabenow, CEI President, reminds us that, “A positive school climate boosts student achievement. Your responses are important to development of a final instrument that is most responsive to your interests.”

Any school with over 20 teachers responding and a 80% response rate will receive its individual results-individual teacher data are completely confidential — all data are analyzed in the aggregate.


Round 2 Awards will be announced on March 1. Last Day to Respond – Feb. 28 Teachers may enter a random drawing to receive Amazon gift cards.  We will be awarding 1 Grand prize – a $250 Amazon Gift Card – and 10 additional gift cards, valued at $50 each. Results are determined by a random number generator


Our thanks to MEMSPA (the Michigan Elementary and Middle School Principals’ Association), TEPSA (the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association), Lead180, and the Ontario Principals Council for your support. Contact cmason@edimprovement,org if you have questions.
