The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools has unveiled a new web site for the Character Education and Civic Engagement Technical Assistance Center (CETAC), called CETAC Online. The site provides state program administrators, local educators, and the public with information about character education and civic engagement programs, as well as strategies that support academic goals and other reform efforts. It also will provide support and information for and about schools involved in character education and civic engagement across the country, officials said. The site contains publicly accessible information about legislative changes and news and events, as well as publications on character education and links to resources of interest to the field. “This new web site is an excellent tool for educators, parents, and the community across the nation because it provides significant information and resources on character education and civic engagement–two key components in the historic No Child Left Behind education reform law,” U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige said in a statement announcing the online resource.
