Parents and teachers want their children to flourish in all aspects. No one wants their children to get A’s, but flunk life. How do we form good character, so our kids succeed?

Interviews with thought leaders
In our Character and Culture podcast you’ll encounter the dynamics of character formation as they actually happen in unique schools. Far from presenting a one-size-fits-all solution, we’ll talk about promising practices and common pitfalls from educators and civic leaders who serve students, not statistics. And you’ll hear about some of the best qualitative research, done by scholars who know how to speak your language.

Tools and tips on-the-go
Promising Practices in Character and Culture is a quick, seven-minute podcast that highlights a “move” in character education done by a real educator at a real school. There are no cookie-cutter solutions here—only hard-won wisdom as told by people who have tested it in their classrooms and cafeterias.

It’s a must-read for educators and civic leaders who are on the frontlines of nurturing good children, wise leaders, and virtuous citizens. And you could get it for free! Simply sign up below.
