Berkowitz, Marvin W.
Action in Teacher Education, v20 n4 p1-10 Win 1998
Examines the need for, and obstacles to, implementing effective preservice training in character education, addressing six obstacles: disagreement on what character is; disagreement on what constitutes character education; perceptions of limited space in preservice curricula; limited scientific data on what character-education elements are effective; where the expertise and resources are; and ambivalence about the appropriateness of educating for character.
