An excellent new book that recognizes the renewed interest in the United States in the idea that education does more than prepare people for jobs is getting high grades from students and parents across the country. The book, Colleges That Encourage Character Development, recognizes 600 diverse colleges, universities, programs, and individuals who are actively involved in "educating the character," providing students, parents and advisors specific information that they can use in selecting a college or university.
