KNOWLEDGE + CHARACTER

Why is it important to include character with education? Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual is the sole end of education. – Charlotte Mason

How does character education fit in with this educational option? Teachers should be moral exemplars. Teachers are not perfect but are people who must have a love for children and have a moral center.

What programs do we implement into the school to support character? Character Counts, Steven Covey’s Seven Habits, Caring Community Schools
