The Compassionate Curriculum principles embody beliefs about what is important in life. They should underpin all school decision making- nationally and locally.

(for self, other humans and all sentient beings)
Being scientific
(inquiry, truth without fear, inclusiveness, sharing)
Embracing civics

Guiding Principle from the Conservation Principle
True hope resides in symbol use that embraces the reality of continuous, universal change and personal stewardship.
Delusive hope (misery) resides in symbol use that denies this reality.
