Character Education

About Character Education

Character Education's mission to help schools teach students to be good citizens for North Carolina Public School Teachers. It is a goal for schools, districts, and states to teach students the important values that we all share. Some of these values include: respect; responsibility; integrity; perseverance; courage; justice and self-discipline. The work of Character Education addresses issues that are of concern in our society and our schools. Contact Justyn Knox Burgess for more information or to request support for your PSU.
