That the nation is divided when it comes to educating the student of the 21st century is well known. But now some of the effects of that national division are becoming clear: methods and strategies of educating our students is becoming a subject best avoided when talking about what needs to be done to help educate our students in this day and time. Whether it’s Charter Schools, Private Schools, Public Schools or even Boarding Schools, many parents, teachers, politicians and administrators are avoiding discussing how to deal with the Bullying culture of the students of today. Perhaps the most obvious sign of this reluctance to address the issue is the fact that Character education has almost been abolished from everyone’s curriculum all together.
“Character education is a must if we are to give our students the needed and necessary tools to be successful in school and life,” explains Jamahl Keyes, professional speaker, author and producer of Americas number one Anti Bully Assembly Program Indianapolis.”Today’s student has no idea of the repercussions of not knowing what character is and how good character opens up doors and secures their success.”
“The results of a student understanding what Character is” says Jamahl Keyes, professional speaker, author and producer of Americas number one Anti Bully Assembly Program Indianapolis, ”Is a culture of students understanding that their success is not only what grades they may get, but what impact positive or negative they have on the people around them.”
New subjects in schools are rapidly taking the place of Character education and leadership.
“Give me a student that has a 4.0 GPA and horrible character and give me a student that has a 2.5 GPA and a great character, the student with the 2.5 GPA will out shine the other student simply because, they will have every resource available to them to succeed, simply because they will be a pleasant student and later worker to be around.” Jamahl Keyes, professional speaker, author and producer of Americas number one Anti Bully Assembly Program Indianapolis, laments.
