The Journal of Character Education is the one professional journal in education devoted to character education. Our goal is to cover the field—from the latest research to applied best practices. We include editorials and conceptual articles by the best minds in our field, reviews of latest books, ideas and examples of the integration with character education of socio‐emotional learning and other relevant strategies, manuscripts by educators that describe best practices in teaching and learning related to character education, and Character Education Partnership (CEP) updates and association news.
