School Culture Before Character Education: A Model for Change.
Goldsmith-Conley, Elizabeth
Action in Teacher Education, v20 n4 p48-58 Win 1998
Discusses Alfie Kohn's argument that developing caring, thoughtful citizens via character education is preferable to creating the obedient, unreflective workers cultivated by many programs. Suggests focusing not only on classroom culture, but also on school culture, describing a New York City model for developing caring and reflective communities and contrasting it with less desirable cultures.
