Cultivating a Culture of Character in Schools: From Theory to Practice
Abstract / پوختە / الملخص :
How can educational institutions develop a culture of character? The 11 Principles Framework for Schools, published by Character.org, is an evidence-informed guide to cultivating a culture of character. As a central perspective, this framework states that character development extends beyond a lesson or class. A comprehensive and sustained character initiative must involve all educational community members and be woven into all aspects of school culture, teaching, and learning. The word character refers to a broad range of core values and principles that shape a person’s deeply held priorities and beliefs, but more importantly, their consistent decisions and actions. These virtues and principles illuminate our common humanity and transcend religious, cultural, or ethnic differences. The 11 Principles, based on evidence and best practices, provide a pathway for schools to articulate and develop a culture of character.
