Service Learning in the Comer School Development Program


by Norris M. Haynes & James P. Comer 1997

This "social and moral imperative" is essential to the development of character. It teaches responsibility, caring, altruism, and a respect for the dignity and basic human rights of others, while caring for and respecting oneself. Thus, education extends beyond the learning of academic subject matter and the development of good habits of mind. It is also concerned with the cultivation of good habits of heart and work. The Comer School Development Program seeks to create positive school environments in which adults and children coexist in challenging and mutually respectful learning communities where good citizenship is encouraged, supported, and rewarded.
