MISSION :: 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 values that we all share. It is the intentional, proactive effort by schools, districts, and states to instill in their students important core, ethical, and civic values such as respect, responsibility, integrity, perseverance, courage, justice, and self-discipline. Character education's long-term solutions address moral, ethical, and academic issues that are of growing concern about our society and the safety of our schools. Character Education is effectively integrated into the Social Studies Standard Course of Study and may be used as the underpinning for other critical issues such as discipline problems, gang violence, teen pregnancy, and poor academic achievement.Character education may address such critical issues as student absenteeism, discipline.
