An initiative to deliver principle-based ethics education

Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative

Middle School Students in Class

Middle School Program

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Middle School Program builds upon courses, curriculum, and resources previously created for the High School Program and modified for instruction to middle school students. During the five- year pilot, Daniels Fund partner MBA Research will work closely with an advisory team of Career and Technical Education teachers to maximize the effectiveness of all program components.

Expected results of the pilot phase include two new courses with supporting materials, instructional resources to encourage school-wide integration of ethics, expansion or creation of student ethics competitions and service learning projects (developed with DECA, FBLA, and BPA), new student and teacher micro-credentials, and professional development opportunities for middle school teachers.
