This organization added tremendous value to the Bridgeport Public Schools by challenging our students to reflect upon, write about and demonstrate ethical behavior. As a result of our involvement with the School for Ethical Education, Inc, our students not only won distinction for their essays but they also created meaningful, charitable projects.

Additionally, I can say that the School for Ethical Education leadership is comprised of outstanding human beings intent on raising the level of ethical consciousness across our communities. It has been a pleasure to be associated with such fine citizens.

West Haven High School has a long standing relationship with the School for Ethical Education that has been overwhelmingly positive! Our students established an Academic Integrity Committee and have created an integrity policy that was approved by the Board of Education. This group has been very active and the support from the SEE has been invaluable. AIC (Academic Integrity Committee) also develops lessons for advisory and reads to third grade classes about integrity (SpongeBob, etc.). The School for Ethical Education has also worked with our teachers on a variety of projects including Achieving with Integrity where we implement integrity lessons into English, Science and Social Studies classes. The leadership, advice, and guidance offered from the staff as the SEE is extremely meaningful and helpful.

As a committee member for Leadership Greater Valley, a community based training program, we continue to rely on The School of Ethical Education to conduct the Ethics Session of our 9-week course.

Year after year, the sessions lead by David Wangaard, Executive Director of SEE, earn high results from student surveys. The content covered and the manner it is delivered in makes an impact -- on a business, social and personal level.

I would recommend SEE to any organization that:
- has an ethics plan in place,
- is considering putting one in place,
- or simply is feels ethics requires a focus in their organization

I encourage you to contact the School of Ethical Education to SEE what they could do for you. I am certain the results will be positive, as the surveys we conduct continue to be rewarding for our annual leadership program.

I believe SEE is on the right path and has the right leadership. It is up to the academic and business leaders to put a higher degree of focus into Ethics. I believe the change should start there.

Professional. That is the one word that best describes the School for Ethical Education, Inc. David Wangaard and his associates have a clarity of vision for schools to assist them in focusing on strategies to develop a caring and responsible classroom environment. His books in service learning, character based decision making and now, academic integrity deserve the attention of all potential funders who understand that the development of good people is every bit as important as the development of smart people. Indeed a good education must aspire to both and the School For Ethical Education raises this truth to a high level.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

working with David over the years in many different efforts focused on the application of solid research directed towards the character development of youth

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help expand their efforts. His work on academic integrity merits special consideration and focus in these times.
