Educating for character

Dr. Thomas Lickona’s book “Educating for Character” presents a 12-point program to teach students about respect and responsibility in every environment from the classroom to the school bus. This book outlines tangible strategies designed to develop compassion, hard work, and other values in students – and also explains how to collaborate with teachers, parents, and communities to foster positive character development in students.

Called “the father of modern character education”, Dr. Lickona is a developmental psychologist, professor, and educator who has received awards for his work in teacher and parent education. He has also authored several other books on character education, including “How to Raise Kind Kids”, “Character Matters”, and “Sex, Love, and You”.
