Character education: The why before the how

Launching character education in your school? Tom Haigh urges schools to start off with the why and not the how…

“I know character education is essential for our students to flourish, and I know it can totally transform our school, but how do I get the rest of my colleagues bought in?”

After delivering a webinar recently to more than 100 schools and colleges on how to become a “school of character”, this was the most common question.

Character education will always have a limited impact unless it is woven into every element of the school. It needs to be done through a whole-school approach and this can only be achieved if staff and stakeholders buy-in to what we are trying to do.
