In this segment from ClassCast Episode 005, teacher and philosopher Jim Dunning and host Ryan Tibbens discuss data in schools, the purpose of schools, and the morality (or possible immorality) of schools. Schools collect a lot of data -- do they use it? If so, how and why? What is the purpose of public school? Do schools achieve or fully live up to that goal? Are schools moral? If you had to redesign education from the ground up, would you create anything that looks like schools today? Each of these topics is addressed in earnest both in this clip and in other parts of the full conversation. Watch for the full release of ClassCast Episode 005 later this week!
Where philosophy, policy, pedagogy, & people come together in honest, purposeful conversations about improving school & education for our students & our communities.
