Abstract: This chapter focuses on the kind of virtue education that should be given in schools to minimize the risk of interpersonal crime among children and youth. First, we analyze the contribution virtue ethics, in particular a virtue approach to virtue education as a theoretical perspective, can deliver to preclude violence in schools. Second, we aim to propose three unique orientations that are attached to this perspective: education that outshines from knowing to doing and to being, an education that transcends from information to formation and transformation, and finally, an education that transforms from curriculum centered and teacher centered to person centered.
