Ethics program worries District 47 parents
CRYSTAL LAKE – As District 47 officials look to implement character-based education,
a group of concerned parents voiced opposition to it Monday night.
Next month, the school board is slated to vote on whether to implement Character Counts, a program aimed at enhancing ethics in children.
Character Counts has six basic tenets that, depending on how the school board votes, would be adopted into classrooms districtwide starting later, this school year. The programs principles are trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship.
