PERSPECTIVES ON CHARACTER EDUCATION
Dr. Marvin Berkowitz shares some thought-provoking insights from his career as a character educator, particularly in terms of delivering character in schools, and his experience of training and equipping school leaders in cultivating meaningful character provision in their schools.
Each short film addresses an important aspect of character education, including the role of the school leader, teacher, and parents, and the impact of a school’s approach to character on its staff.
