ETHICS IN EDUCATION NETWORK
Ethics in Education Network envisions equitable and inclusive educational environments that support students in becoming adults capable of and committed to building ethical institutions and dismantling systems of oppression and inequality. We believe that the well-being and even survival of humans, animals other-than-human, and the planet depend on expanding our universe of obligation, cultivating empathy, and confronting extreme economic inequality.
Ethics in Education Network initiatives have included:
- The Ethical Community Charter School-Jersey City, which graduated its first 8th grade class in 2018. All students take ethics classes and ethical issues inform the curriculum.
- Professional Development, focusing on SEL in school and out-of-school programs.
- Ethical Schools Podcast.
- Ethical Schools Blog (formerly, the Newsletter).
- Ethics in Education Symposia for educators and youth workers.
