Can Love Be Taught?

Can Love Be Taught?On this Valentine's Week, everyone's attention is drawn to matters of the heart. As part of his work, Lecturer Richard Weissbourd explores how schools can help better prepare young people for romantic relationships. In fact, he wrote about this topic last year with Rebecca Givens Rolland in the Harvard Education Letter article, "Learning About Love." In this edition of the EdCast, Weissbourd discusses whether love can be effectively taught in schools, reflects on the state of sex-ed, and examines where love is best modeled in the media.
