David Brooks of the New York Times: Students Learn from People They Love

Columnist David Brooks recently wrote in the New York Times about neuroscience research that shows students learn better from teachers that they feel an emotional connection to.
 
That theory has long been at the core of a Hun education, according to Hun Headmaster Jonathan Brougham.
 
“The article hits home for anyone who knows Hun,” said Mr. Brougham. “We are a school that puts student teacher relationships at our core.  It’s heartening that modern research is confirming what John Gale Hun had in mind when he started Hun 105 years ago. Every good teacher knows that students do better when they feel respected, safe, and loved, and our years of experience here at Hun have born that out.”
