Demonstrating respect is an essential component of character and citizenship education. Respecting all living things is an attitude outcome throughout the science curriculum and showing respect for self and others is a component of the health curriculum. The concept that every one counts regardless of background, beliefs, appearance, and often for the case of animals, perceived value is at the heart this. Every living thing has intrinsic value that necessitates respect and compassion and discussing the notion that every one counts helps empower students to make choices that positively impact others.
