Parents used to see that their children were taught morality and responsibility. Nurturing parents used to teach by example or by accompanying, or at least sending their children to religious institutions for instruction. But in the twenty-first century we are told that homes with nurturing parents are becoming the exception rather than the rule. As a society, where does that leave us? How are young people to acquire morals and responsibility if these things are not taught? Are we asking schools to fill the void? If so, How does a school system determine which, if any, view of morality to teach?
These workbooks are an attempt to fill the void. We invite you to use the contents and to explore the links to other web sites offering character education, values and ethical exercises which you will find in the Favorite Links area of our Teachers Forum.
