Diversity and Character Education Character Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

Other persons view smoking in different moral lights, and the notion of the example set by health care professionals is a vital topic in this field. In short, healthcare employees must not condone smoking through their own negative behaviors, observed by patients who are dealing with the health consequences of a lifetime habit -- but the organization must provide support for the workers to stop smoking and not simply assure them that strength of will enables them to quit.

This is an excellent example of the best of character and diversity education. It is specific and meaningful, concrete and tolerant, yet embraces discussion. Character is not set or engraved in stone, it can and must change in relation to others and to the needs of a community. However, that does not mean that a person must abandon what is good about his or her upbringing, personal character traits, or other unique 'quirks.' Character and diversity education in the school or workforce is an evolving art, not an exact science.
