A short article, a civility measurement activity to do with students,
and a printable civility index

School principal Todd Nelson discusses an issue having increasing
impact upon our society. In his article, Our Civility Footprint,
Nelson says:

"Civility has every bit as much to do with the quality of life here in
the biosphere as fossil fuel emissions or ozone depletion, if not
more. Are civility emissions as measurable as carbon emissions? Can
one measure a civility footprint as we would a carbon footprint?"
