    Character Education in Schools and the Education of Teachers.Lynn Revell & James Arthur - 2007 - Journal of Moral Education 36 (1):79-92.
    This article explores student teachers' attitudes to and experience of character and values education in schools and looks at their assessment of the opportunities provided by schools for the development of character.

    Children's Responses to Character Education.Lynn Revell - 2002 - Educational Studies 28 (4):421-431.
    This is an investigation of Character Education in American public schools in the Chicago area. The research involved interviewing almost 700 children from a wide variety of schools and ages. The children were asked about their views on citizenship, Americanness and identity. They were also asked explicitly what they thought of Character Education. The results indicate that, despite a similar programme of education, teaching attitudes and teaching materials, the most marked difference between the children's responses correlated strongly with the type (...)
