This book aims to reconstruct Aristotelian character education, offering new insights on what moral character really is, and how it can be highlighted, measured, nurtured and taught in schools.

The author addresses popular myths about Aristotelian character education, and the practical ramifications and methodologies of character education. These include measuring virtue and morality; asking whether Aristotelian character education can mitigate the effects of a disadvantaged upbringing; and consider the practical implications for teacher training and classroom practice.
