Character Education: Restoring Respect and Responsibility in Our Schools

Resource Type

Video - Parent


"In this video Thomas Lickona discusses the importance of the role of schools in the development of student respect, responsibility, and moral education. With the changing role of families, lack of religious affiliation among our youth as well as a decaying moral climate depicted in our media and entertainment industry, schools must play a major role in character and moral development. Using examples from four schools in Maryland, New York, Virginia, and Massachusetts, Dr Lickona demonstrates specific classroom strategies as well as school-wide approaches for creating working models for teaching values and character education in our nation's schools." -Child Development Media, Inc.
