Morals and Ethics in Education

Posted on: November 1, 2009

To what extent are moral and ethical considerations taken into account in educational decision making? Take unhealthy school lunches as an example. Burgers and fries and pizza and hot dogs, while I will support on occasion [smile], are not healthy choices. We’ve known for a bazillion years what healthy food is and how important smart nutritional choices are for students. But of course it requires more money and resources to provide fresh/nutritional/healthy meal and snack options.

The “right” thing [also moral/ethical] is to provide the babies with what’s good for them! I appreciate what’s happening in the Baltimore City Public Schools – locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, meatless Mondays, and nutritional education to name a few.
