Researching and promoting character education in latin american secondary schools: Reflections on the project results
Resumen: Abstract: This project aimed to gain greater understanding of how Education of positive character traits is promoted in the context of Latin American secondary schools. Reflecting the practical and applied nature of educational research, it has a research-focused component and an application-focused component.
The project advances a vision of the importance of the cultivation of character virtues for the empowerment of individuals. In doing so, it also encourages spiritual prosperity and try to alleviate social problems, in this case contributing to the positive development of Latin American societies at a critical time in their history. The project team achieves these aims by using innovative research methods, cutting-edge dissemination, and participative outreach. This project is needed because although awareness of character education has increased in the English-speaking world in recent years, to date there has been little exchange between developments in this field in North America and Europe and the countries of Latin America.
