Indeed, there’s a connection between the various crises we face today and how people behave, produce, and interact. Schools could develop programs that teach more constructive behaviors, inhibit destructive or problem-producing interactions, and contribute to a more conscientious population. At NIA, we have chosen to focus on 4 essential qualities or competencies: Compassion, Conscience, Control, and Courage. These, we believe, will transform and improve the way our students think, behave, and feel towards each other and humanity. These, we believe, will enhance, not just Muslim communities, but society in general.
