Newspaper article on Forget-me-not

We would like to celebrate the attached Korean newspaper article about "Thank you, for helping me", a story book written and illustrated by FORGET-ME-NOT, an extraordinary CASE team initiated by our students in 2014.
The article talks about how the team was formed and the book published, and that this is a very good example of 'Making Caring Common', a project initiated by the Harvard Graduate School of Education with the goal of nurturing 'Caring' dispositions in students . She further talks about how Korean University Entrance processes should also move toward this direction.
The books are on sale in the school shop (Open every Thursday 3~4pm).
All the proceeds will go to raising awareness and supporting campaigns and donations for the victims of this sad history.
