Why It Matters
For some young people, your school and classrooms are the only places that resemble a suitable space for growth and development. A conducive learning environment is imperative for educators and students to achieve their intended outcomes. This type of environment requires corporative students as well as a positive climate and culture. Unfortunately, the responsibility of character-building often falls to educators.
