2016 National Forum on Character Education
Oct. 14 -15, 2016 | Washington, DC

During this National Forum in our capital city only a few weeks before a presidential election, we will discuss civic responsibility, creating good citizenship and building leadership in our communities. It’s up to us to make the world better, and we can do that by first developing better people. That’s why we’ve chosen the theme: Educate, Inspire, Empower: Building Productive and Caring Citizens

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to interact with noted educators and researchers, enjoy keynote presentations by well-known leaders like Michele Borba, celebrate with the 2016 Schools of Character and discover the latest products and services that support character education in our exhibit hall.
