  • Good character ought be required learning in school.

    True, our natural selves are "me" oriented, but we should learn what good traits are, recognize variances in others and adjust accordingly.

    My favorite traits include integrity (trust-worthiness), perseverance, responsibility(ownership) . While humility etc are fine, how close do we have to be judge fairly. The opposite of integrity is dishonesty; of perseverance is feebleness; of responsibility is blame.

    I agree that we should include and exercise the ones you show, and we should know and be aware of most others.

    Many thanks for the opportunity to chime in. I have directly mentored young men intensely in a church program / environment to a very fine result The program was four years, coincided with the school year, four hours on Saturday's, 26 (approx) weeks a year.

    These graduates are respectful, good students, and good citizens. They recognize the good character in others and adjust accordingly.

    Thought you might like to know.
