Perspectives Charter Schools students are learning to be ethical leaders through the A Disciplined Life education model. At our five campuses throughout the South Side of Chicago, they study the 26 principles of A Disciplined Life, which help them develop positive self-perception, healthy relationships, and tools for productivity. Perspectives students graduate from high school, enroll in college, and persist towards graduation at rates above the national average.
The “I Am For Peace” campaign began this spring with a peace march that drew 3,000 students, families, and supporters and earned extensive local and national media coverage. Along with the peace march, a Kickstarter campaign raised more than $35,000 to create the “I Am For Peace” documentary, which is being developed by New Chapter Entertainment, a production company started by former Oprah Winfrey Show producers. Now, with the “I Am For Peace” campaign, the students are looking to share how the principles of A Disciplined Life can bring peace to our city. The Perspectives “I Am For Peace” Premiere will be just the start of a movement to spread this story throughout the city and beyond.
