The current issue of the JCE is the second under the new name, Journal of Character Education, and the first in its standard format of a set of reviewed submitted articles with additional practitioner-focused articles. In this issue, there are four scholarly peer-reviewed articles. Two focus on school-based evaluations: one on the evaluation of a middle-school strengths-based intervention and a second that explores character development in a post-secondary setting. The other two are conceptual in nature: one presents a conceptual ecological model for such programs and the other reviews and analyses different perspectives on identify development. In addition, we hear from an exemplary middle school teacher about his journey to integrate character education into the math classroom. Lastly, David Streight offers an insightful response to the themed V10 N1 issue on psychological and sociological perspectives on 21st century US character development.
