Character Education outside the home is a controversial issue. In a diverse society, “good” character can mean different things to different people. However, there are some values, like tolerance and fairness, that are intrinsic to a democratic society, and are always appropriate to be taught in public programs.
Ripple Effects can be used in its entirety as a comprehensive character development curriculum, or parts of it can be used in a flexible program that can range from one day to several weeks. As with other subject areas, users are encouraged to tailor the program to be consistent with your community standards.
Ripple Effects programs are aligned to every one of the Character Education Partnership’s Principles of Effectiveness.
