Jan. 11, 2012 - PRLog -- ROCKPORT, Maine – Schools K-12 and community colleges will now be better able to access and afford ethical training, thanks to a $135,000 grant from The David and Lucile Packard Foundation. The grant, awarded to the Institute for Global Ethics’ Ethical Literacy® Learning Community, will reduce costs and fees with a nearly 50 percent savings for participants through the electronic delivery of services.

The Packard grant will fund implementation over the next two years of a sustainability plan to deliver the Ethical Literacy process electronically, through online training and follow on support from the IGE coaching staff and from teams in other participating schools.

“This grant is an opportunity to find more affordable, efficient ways for schools around the world to increase levels of Ethical Literacy and build stronger cultures of integrity,” said Paula Mirk, IGE education director. “We look forward to building a worldwide community of educators dedicated to advancing the broadest purpose of education – an ethical future for all of us.”

Any school that is interested in building awareness about why ethics matter and is prepared to take deliberate steps toward building a culture of integrity in their institutions would benefit from this affordable training opportunity. To obtain more information about IGE’s online training, please visit www.ethical-literacy.org or call +1-207-542-1546.

The Ethical Literacy Learning Community provides school community members with tools and processes to build and maintain a culture of integrity based on shared values, ethical decision-making, and research about balancing attention to academic rigor with attention to the ethical development of young people.
