Educational Goods: Values, Evidence, and Decision-Making

Join the Center for Ethics & Education for a talk about Susanna Loeb and Harry Brighouse's new book, "Educational Goods."
Tuesday, February 20, 2018
12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
253 Educational Sciences
We spend a lot of time arguing about how schools might be improved. But we rarely take a step back to ask what we as a society should be looking for from education — what exactly should those who make decisions be trying to achieve?

Susanna Loeb and Harry Brighouse will talk about their new book, written with Adam Swift and Helen Ladd, "Educational Goods," which offers a way of combining rigorous thinking about values and careful consideration of evidence when making decisions about, and within, schools.
