The Journal of Character Education is the leading source of cutting-edge knowledge about character education research, theory, practice, and opinion. We define character education broadly to encompass all educational approaches designed to nurture students’ knowledge, motivation, skills, and behavior concerning all four aspects of character: moral, performance, civic, and intellectual. The Journal publishes manuscripts that report research relevant to character education, conceptual articles, and book reviews that provide theoretical, historical, and philosophical perspectives on the field of character education as it is broadly defined above. The Journal is also interested in practical articles about implementation and specific programs, and informed opinion statements.
