Do values and purpose belong at school? Anecdotal and research evidence suggests we can’t afford to keep them out.
We need to make character more explicit in our communities, organizations, and wider global experience; it is through story, sharing, and accessibility to character that will empower adults to be the best moral and ethical version of themselves.
We are complex beings. In our complexities lie the beauty of deep-rooted core values we aspire to exemplify. These values sustain the daily interactions we have with one another.
Character education has been linked to a more positive school community as well as a decrease in bullying behavior.
Not only do core values provide a guideline for all decision-making and assessment, they are also a way to make sure everyone is on the same page.
