In a recent interview with the newspaper El Nuevo Dia, Puerto Rico Governor Luis Fortuno highlighted the merits and importance of Tus Valores Cuentan (CHARACTER COUNTS!), and the positive impact it’s having in Puerto Rico.
Hundreds of schools across the island are using Tus Valores Cuentan to improve school climate and help students develop ethical values. Like CHARACTER COUNTS! in the continental U.S., Tus Valores Cuentan is based on the Six Pillars of Character (los seis pilares del carácter) and helps teachers integrate these universal values into everyday lessons and activities.
In his interview with El Nuevo Dia, Governor Fortuno spoke of his belief in the Tus Valores Cuentan program to develop leadership in communities, tackle moral development in schools, and even to combat violence and crime in Puerto Rico.
