Administrators working in the field might be interested in reports generated in Tennessee where each year the Commissioner of Education reports on CRE work in the schools. Here’ an excerpt from the Tennessee Office of School Safety and Learning Support that describes the approach and links to a recent report.
“Tenn. Code Ann. §49-2-118 and Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-6-1007 provide that the Commissioner of Education shall annually report to the General Assembly regarding the implementation of conflict resolution and character education programs in Tennessee schools. Below you will find our reports for the 2006-2007 school year.
Character education and conflict resolution programs support the social, emotional and moral development of our students while addressing the negative behaviors, attitudes and beliefs that frequently serve as a barrier to learning. The preceding report provides an overview of the nature and extent of these programs in schools across the state.
Questions regarding the report may be directed to Laura Nichols by phone at (615) 741-3248 or via email to email@example.com.
