KEARNEYSVILLE, W.Va. - The public is invited to attend "An Education Summit on Ethics," Friday and Saturday at two Eastern Panhandle locations.
The purposes of the free conference are to examine the many ideas about what contemporary education is supposed to accomplish; to discuss some of the ethical dilemmas facing educators, parents and students today; and to consider whether, and how, ethics can be taught in the classroom.
The Friday session runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at Hedgesville High School, Hedgesville, W.Va. A reception for the speakers will follow.
The keynote address will be given by Jamienne Studley, acting counsel for the U.S. Department of Education and a former associate dean of Yale Law School. She will discuss the what education today is supposed to be or do, what the product is and who should make the decision about what educators do.
