John Bingham, Social Affairs Editor, writes about a study involving 10,000 British children and 250 teachers, conducted by the Jubilee Centre.
From the Telegraph article:
Children who sing in a choir, play in an orchestra or take to the stage are more likely to make good moral choices than their fellow classmates, a study has concluded.
Are you surprised that children who learn how to collaborate and work with each other in artistic disciplines show greater moral reasoning? Do you have an anecdote or similar experience to share? Do you think something else accounts for the higher scores in morality?
You can review the Jubilee Centre report, Character Education in UK Schools, in full via their website.
