Teachers told ‘character education’ most important part of their work
Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Teaching values during school is a teacher’s most important job, a character education expert told Jefferson City School District teachers and staff Monday morning, during the program launching the 2011-12 school year.
“Character education is more important than test scores,” former teacher Hal Urban said. “And I think they’re even more important than the test scores that kids get in our individual classes — not that those are unimportant.”
