Funding brief: The Center for Education and Ethics announces a new grant program. The Center will make awards of up to $40,000 for research projects in philosophy as it relates to educational policy and practice. They encourage applicants to understand educational policy and practice in broad terms, including issues that directly relate to K-12 schools and higher education institutions, but also concerning policies that influence children’s growth and development in the family and other institutions. They also encourage diverse kinds of philosophical research ranging from the highly abstract to the highly applied. Proposals might concern any of the following topics:
● The proper content of moral education and of the rights of parents to choose its content
● The place of religion in schools
● Justice and efficiency in the allocation of public funds across schools and school districts
● The content of the curriculum
● The commercialization of schools and childhoods generally
● The obligations to students with special educational needs
● The proper content of sex education in particular and “education for living” more generally (concerning e.g., parenting, financial self-management) and the extent to which it is right for schools to defer to parental preferences regarding these matters
● The moral rights of school students to privacy, to freedom of expression, to freedom of association
● The rights and obligations of teachers with respect to abusive or violent children should schools cultivate the virtues needed to sustain a democratic society, and if so, what are they and how is this best done given the other values schools should realize and pursue ethical considerations in college admissions and enrollment
● They emphasize that this list is illustrative and not exhaustive.
