Character Development in Education


What helps a person succeed in life: their I-Q or their character?

Author Paul Tough bets on character in his book “How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character.”

On this edition of The Regina Brett Show, Regina talks with Paul Tough and local educators about whether or not educators should put more emphasis on character development in the classroom.

Plus, hear from a local math tutor who didn’t let being born without arms keep her from achieving her goal of becoming a teacher.


Guests on this show:

    Mark Hyatt, Character Education Partnership

    Clarissa Grimes, Citizens Academy East

    Paul Tough, Author
