What is Character Education?
Character Education is a national movement creating schools that foster ethical, responsible, and caring young people by modeling and teaching good character through an emphasis on universal traits that we all share. It provides long-term solutions that address moral, ethical, and academic issues that are of growing concern about our society and the safety of our schools.
