What is the public school's role in character development? Do character education programs in schools violate the right of parents to be their children's first teachers?

-Ceryle Moffett

Some people will undoubtedly argue that it is just up to parents, not schools, to teach children values. But all schools teach values, whether they do so explicitly or implicitly, by inclusion or by omission. All educational curricula are based on certain assumptions about social relations; about what was, what is, and what can be. The issue therefore is not whether schools should teach values but what kinds of values schools teach.

-Riane Eisler, author of Tomorrow's Children: A Blueprint for the Partnership Education in the 21st Century
