Why Character Education?
summarizing studies on the relationship between children’s emotional
achievement behavior, researchers found that students with
frequent feelings of internalized distress (e.g. sadness, anxiety,
depression) show diminished academic functioning and those with
externalized distress (e.g. anger, frustration, and fear) exhibit school
difficulties including learning delays and poor achievement . (Roeser, Eccles, & Strobel, 1998)
Healthy peer relationships predict students’ grades both concurrently and over time (Wentzel & Caldwell, 1997)
