Character Education and Project Wisdom
Research shows that morale directly impacts achievement. When teachers
and students work in a positive school culture, students learn more effectively
and teacher retention improves. Effective schools create a strong sense
of community, which in turn fosters higher levels of student learning.
Although these articles were written some years back, they have been
recently reviewed by a subject matter expert for relevancy and are
as important today as ever before. The bottom line? The focused and
intentional development of character, as well as social and emotional
development, produces outstanding results, transforming individual
lives as well as entire campuses.
"The program has definitely had a positive impact on our school climate and the way kids speak and treat each other.
