Journal of Character Education
Character.org partners with editors to support on the Journal of Character Education which serves an audience of researchers, policy makers, teacher educators, and school practitioners concerned with the development of positive character in young people. The journal presents character education as a comprehensive and interdisciplinary term that reflects Character.org’s Eleven Principles of Effective Character Education. These principles call upon schools to address character education in their overall school climate, academic curriculum, extra-curricular activities, inter-personal relationships, and school governance. These efforts are school-wide and should touch every student and all school personnel. The Journal will publish articles that report the results of research relevant to character education, as well as conceptual articles that provide theoretical, historical, and philosophical perspectives on the field of character education as it is broadly defined.
