Divided Nation Pushes The Need For More Student Leadership Speakers To Talk About The Need For Good Character Development.
That the nation is divided when it comes to effective ways to educate our students is well known. But now some of the effects of that national division are becoming clear: Student Leadership and Character Development are becoming more and more needed throughout the country. Perhaps the most obvious sign of this need is the rising reports of violence and bullying on the elementary, middle school and high school level.
“It use to be the case that student leadership and character development was taught in homes and in the curriculum throughout the country,” explains Jamahl Keyes, Top selling student leadership author, character development expert and teacher professional development workshop trainer.”Teachers are having a very tough time educating our students about math and language arts, because they are being interrupted by students that lack student leadership skills or need to learn more about character development.”
The results, says Jamahl Keyes, Top selling student leadership author, character development, of exposing any students to a leadership and character education is phenomenal.
Exposing any students to student leadership and character development strategies throughout the year helps them make better choices in school and life.
“Students understand alternative behavior and the positive outcome in school and life, many of them have no idea of what they may be doing wrong because they have never been taught student leadership and character education,” laments Jamahl Keyes. “That makes the need for these programs at a all time high.”
