This podcast, produced by the Center for Ethics and Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and funded by the Spencer Foundation, delves into a wide array of ethical issues in education. It features conversations and interviews with education researchers, philosophers, and university professors, exploring topics that range from classroom dilemmas to overarching policy decisions. The content spans various levels of education, from K-12 to higher education, often accompanied by teaching guides designed to enrich discussions in sociology, education, and philosophy classes.

An overarching theme in the podcast is the ethical dimensions of higher education. Several episodes discuss the responsibilities and impacts of university mentorship, the ethics involved in college admissions and the true costs of higher education, and how universities might level societal inequalities. Another recurrent topic is the educational experiences at minority-serving institutions such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and the specific ethical challenges they face.

The podcast also tackles contemporary issues in education such as sex education, the use of social media by faculty, and the controversies surrounding "divisive concepts" in educational discourse. There are reflective discussions on the relationship between education and social mobility, exploring how educational policies and practices can both hinder and promote equity and inclusion.

Philosophical inquiries into the principles of justice in education, the ethics of punishment and indoctrination in teaching, and the role of love and humor in educational settings are also prominent. The show also features book talks with authors whose works address critical educational issues, providing an in-depth look at new perspectives and research in the field.

In summary, this podcast provides a comprehensive exploration of ethical concerns in education, blending theoretical inquiries with practical implications, and highlighting ongoing debates and emerging research in the field.
