A note from our Executive Director:
"My personal favorite pillar of character is FAIRNESS. Why?
To me, fairness is the essence of character. Enacting fairness intimately involves each of the remaining five pillars. To be fair, one must be trustworthy in their actions with others, displaying respect and caring at all times. To be fair, one must be aware of their responsibility to others and to themselves to be just in all matters. To boot, fairness is a key principle in good citizenship, as caring for others as one cares for oneself is paramount.
In this month's issue, you will see the word "equity" used interchangeably with "fairness." Dictionary.com gives both words the same definition: "the quality of being fair and impartial."
In my eyes, one thing is certain: children who value fairness grow up to be equitable adults who make our communities safer, happier places for everyone. As we teach our young people this month, I hope that each of us feel for ourselves the investment we are making, not only in the students we teach, but in our communities as well."
