Abstract: At times, today‘s society seems dominated by negativity, disasters and a perceived decrease in humanity. The problems have slowly spread into schools, with education in danger of becoming a process of churning out workers rather than thinkers. Large-scale testing and its worth in educational lore seem to have replaced the need for discrimination and teachers may be becoming expendable in the Western world. The need for character education seems greater than ever in a world where intolerance has in some instances replaced morality. This project looks at the need for character education in today‘s world, the possibility of integrating character into the curriculum, and personal experiences with character education. Educare Everywhere explores the benefits of a values education program and offers a vision of the future of education through the lens of character education.
