The Character Education Week Initiative promotes character education among all PreK-12 schools as they work together to prepare students for the demands and challenges of the 21st century. School of Science and Technology and its partners are all part of this initiative because we believe that a child’s character development is of the utmost importance.
The Character Education Week Initiative encompasses universal core ethical values essential to a healthy society such as citizenship, respect, accountability, dedication, responsibility, caring, honesty, kindness, leadership, integrity, etc. Former U.S. Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Governor Greg Abbott invite you to join all of them in recognizing the critical importance the character education plays in the lives of students.
They run worldwide ‘Color the World with Character’ PreK-12 Poster Drive. The winners will participate in the ‘STARS in the CHARACTER SKY’ Event to learn more from the noble people around the world, and to share their insights with the audience.
