    I want to make sure you understand that character education as I see it
    goes beyond personal beliefs such as religious and political preference, to
    the heart of what is common to all people. Character education, in my
    opinion is the universal traits that everyone agrees are important. These
    traits affirm human worth and dignity and society can not exist without
    them. Many different list have been produced with the common themes. I
    appreciate a list, titled Pillars of Ethical Literacy, produced by the
    Character Development Foundation in Manchester, NH. I will share the list
    with you. I hope it works into your discussion of Inherit the Wind. I have
    never read the book. Sorry I can't be more specific.

            Respect for Human Rights: life liberty, equality
            Respect for the bodies and feelings of others
            Good Work Habits
                    willingness to work
                    pride in quality work
                    sense of duty
                    persistence, self-discipline
            Good decision making
            A lifestyle which promotes health and well being
            Freedom of conscience
            Moral courage
