WE BELIEVE CHARACTER VALUES MATTER
No matter what you call it, Character Education, Social-Emotional Learning, Citizenship, or the Golden Rule, everyone believes that young people need these values and skills to succeed.
But they’re being taught less. Why? Because families have less time together, fewer children participate in civic, after-school and faith based groups, and declining school resources are more focused on core academics.
The result? Fewer kids are learning the character values and skills necessary to truly succeed in school, in work and in life.
