The Great Seduction  – NY Times Article

By DAVID BROOKS,

NY Times OP-ED COLUMNIST

(June 10, 2008)

“Money. The Puritan legacy inhibited luxury and self-indulgence. Benjamin Franklin spread a practical gospel that emphasized hard work, temperance and frugality. Millions of parents, preachers, newspaper editors and teachers expounded the message. The result was quite remarkable.
……
Over the past 30 years, much of that has been shredded. The social norms and institutions that encouraged frugality and spending what you earn have been undermined. The institutions that encourage debt and living for the moment have been strengthened”

“The Definition of Character Education” ASCD website
“Character education involves teaching children about basic human values including honesty, kindness, generosity, courage, freedom, equality, and respect.
The goal is to raise children to become morally responsible, self-disciplined citizens. Problem solving, decision making, and conflict resolution are important parts of developing moral character. Through role playing and discussions, students can see that their decisions affect other people and things.”
