Character Education Succeeds in Partner Districts
In his commentary article written for UMSL Daily, Marvin Berkowitz highlighted the role character education plays in turning around academic achievement, and lamented the frustration in convincing people of its power. He is joined by Amy Johnston, the award-winning principal of 2008 National School of Character Francis Howell Middle School in St. Charles, M0., who often presents a comparison of her school’s academic and character data as compared with the other four middle schools in her district. Even early in her character education journey, she started to see her school pull away from the other four in both areas. Berkowitz’s article is available here.
