Rotary Ethics Symposium

The Rotary Ethics group led a symposium today at Belleville High School. The morning started out with two skits to prepare students for the day. Then, within 10 student groups, junior and senior student leaders who had received training from the Rotary led others through three rounds of ethical dilemmas. The Rotary teaches students to:
R: Recognize an ethical issue.
O: Obtain information about the situation.
T: Test alternative actions from various predictions.
A: Act consistently with your best judgement.
R: Reflect on decision after you act.
Y: Yield to your ethical judgements.
This is all in an effort to ultimately get students to make decisions based on the Golden Rule.
