From the Paper:

"Former South Carroll High School of Sykesville, Maryland George Booz noted that what mattered was not whether a student learned Algebra but whether he learned right from wrong and how people helped one another and that the problem was how this reality could get around (as qtd in Rosenthal 2005). Character education is teaching core values through the formation of good habits (Bennett a qtd in Rosenthal) and this is most effective through regular school courses, such as history, science, math and literature. Teachers refrained from teaching values in the belief that they did not have the right to impose their values on students. Lately, however, they realized how character education could transform the school community. Character education programs have since been developed all over the country and demonstrated encouraging, quantifiable results."
