What Inner-City Children Say about Character


by Beverly Cross — 1997

During interviews with inner-city children, I made copious notes in shorthand to record verbatim what the students said.

What follows are my perceptions and inferences derived from my review of these transcripts. First, I present six statements that summarize mv interpretations of the students' comments in the language they used. Second, I identify some key problems related to character education in inner-city schools—problems that were called to my attention as I studied the transcripts.
