Recognizing, educating, and promoting the benefits of good character to students, parents, and communities.
The dropout rate in America has become a national concern. There are many findings that indicate what the problems are, from issues with early schooling preparation, truancy, economic needs and even boredom.
National Character Education Foundation (NCEF) Innovative Comprehensive Program Design
The National Character Education Foundation (NCEF) has developed a 14-year educational initiative designed to introduce age-appropriate character curriculum from Pre-K to 12th grade.
The program has two primary goals: to educate students to the benefits of good character and to reduce the academic gaps that can prevent students from graduating.
Statement of Significance
We believe we can reduce students' dropout rates through a natural progression of character development and academic enhancement. The National Character Education Foundation (NCEF) program is designed to reduce social and emotional distress that often distracts students from applying themselves to learning at their required grade level.
Studies have shown that academic learning gaps begin to develop at the elementary level and when left unchecked increases with each new grade level that prohibits students from achieving at that required level.
