Nurture, Care, Respect, and Trust is the first collection of interdisciplinary and logically interconnected papers from nationally and internationally acclaimed researchers in philosophy, psychology, history of education, teacher training, educational leaders and practitioners, child advocates, and educators who have been motivated by the philosophy and pedagogy of Dr. Janusz Korczak (1878-1942), a world famous moral exemplar and champion of children’s rights. The book provides answers to timely questions of how to respect children’s rights in K-12 schools, community centers, summer camps, and colleges; how to create an atmosphere of trust and safety, and provide social-emotional learning in the classroom; how to become a genuine child advocate; and how to support growing child agency. It also tells the story of Korczak, his life, and the lives of the children in his charge. Nurture, Care, Respect, and Trust details how Korczak’s legacy encourages and stimulates new projects and spreads around the world. The volume serves as a rich resource of practical materials for teachers and university instructors, introducing a number of innovative lesson plans, examples of students’ works, and school projects inspired by Korczak’s pedagogy.

"In our increasingly diverse and interconnected world, bringing the life and work of Janusz Korczak into the classroom is of vital importance to teachers and students. As we advocate for students' social, emotional, and academic needs, Korczak provides innovative ideas and strategies for developing compassionate and culturally responsive classrooms. After participating in a recent Korczak educators’ workshop, I am now empowered to use his ideas to effectively educate the whole child and promote student agency and self-advocacy."

Ryan Hauck, Director, Global Classroom Program at World Affairs Council, Seattle, WA Social Studies Teacher, Glacier Peak High School, WA

"Children’s rights issues that Korczak pioneered are even more relevant today than they were in his lifetime. This volume’s mission is not just to acknowledge and celebrate his groundbreaking legacy but also to expand on it in current thinking and practice."

Jerry Nussbaum, President, Korczak Association of Canada

“It is indeed heartening to see such a wonderful exposition of the life and work of Janusz Korczak published for today's generation of students and teachers.”

Peter McLaren, Distinguished Professor in Critical Studies, Attallah College of Educational Studies, Chapman University

"Korczak reminds us that the children we are educating are not ‘potential’ people, but are already people with their own needs, ideas and concerns. Listening to them and including them in the decisions about their learning makes our teaching more powerful, and, most importantly, more human. This compelling book will allow educators to become familiar with Korczak’s inspiring legacy, and use it to transform their practice."

Nance Morris Adler, Internationally acclaimed educator for “We are Here! - Foundation for Upstanders,” USHMM Museum Teacher Fellow, Holocaust Center for Humanity Powell Fellow, Seattle, WA

"In American schools today we are just rediscovering the concept of student-centered instruction and teaching the whole child. These ideas were foundational for the Polish physician and educator, Janusz Korczak. If we followed Korczak’s principles here, our schools would become humane learning centers where all children could study and flourish."

Michele Anciaux Aoki, Ph.D., P.M.P., International Education Administrator, Seattle Public Schools, Seattle, WA
