A child’s character begins at home and continues to develop at school. Character education concerns various aspects, from understanding, emotions to different behaviors. As such, for children to form proper behaviors, the school should then act as an incubator creating exemplary and human practices vividly demonstrating living values as guidance for children’s lives in later years. To this end, “learning to behave, to be well-mannered” is equally important to, or even more important than knowledge and skill acquisition.
“Intelligence plus Character” are the two ultimate goals of a true education, as assessed by Martin Luther King.
