The consensus must be local, but it may also be broader; indeed, its advocates sometimes claim (rightly) that virtues such as honesty and integrity are universal and are found in all the world's religions.

But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect. (TLB, Matthew 5:43-48) By humility we acknowledge that God created us for his purposes and not for our self-glorification.

While humans are responsible for their actions and expected to consider carefully the consequences, humility is required, and with it a dependence on the only One who knows all things. Frequently we have no real way of knowing what consequences will result from our actions, or indeed how to rate or measure the good. On these counts alone, while a consideration of the consequences is often a valuable component of our decision-making, it is not sufficient as the only ethical approach , e.g. http://trueent.net/library/bad-connection-the-secret-life-samantha-mc-gregor-book-1.

Character education is more complex than the teaching skills that we humorously refer to as the three Rs (i.e., reading, writing, arithmetic). Therefore, teachers must also be given the proper training to make character education successful and a priority.
