It reveals three distinctive trends in education which include the scientific study, the methodology, and the stress on the character output of the schools. It also puts emphasis on the spiritual values formation aspect of education. It presents discipline as the most comprehensive phase of character education because it involves every principle of training and instruction and exacts the most rigid perfection of methods.
