Academic Integrity Starts in Kindergarten

Acting with integrity begins in kindergarten. Children must learn how to be honest. They need role models to help them develop a sense of respect for doing the right thing.

Students need to be taught a moral vocabulary. Use the language of:

  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Fairness
  • Trustworthiness
  • Honesty
