What does the future of the American High School look like? Can it teach students about their home and family, their future occupation, and civic life or should it remain specialized and seek what Nel Noddings calls “the one-best-way” approach? Join Why? Radio as we take a philosophical look at the meaning and methods of American teenage education.

Nel Noddings is Lee L. Jacks Professor of Education, Emerita, at Stanford University. She is also a past president of the National Academy of Education, the Philosophy of Education Society, and the John Dewey Society. Her most recent book is Education and Democracy in the 21st Century. She has written numerous others, including: Caring: A Feminine Approach to Ethics and Moral Education, Women and Evil, The Challenge to Care in Schools, Educating for Intelligent Belief or Unbelief, and Philosophy of Education, and more than 200 articles and book chapters on various topics ranging from the ethics of care to mathematical problem solving.

To listen live from anywhere in the world, go to http://www.whyradioshow.org/. To listen via broadcast radio in North Dakota, tune to 89.3 in Grand Forks, 91.9 in Fargo, 90.5 in Bismarck, and on other Prairie Public radio stations across the state.

Why? Radio needs your help more than ever; we have to be self-sustaining. Why? Radio has to raise our own money and pay our own bills; we get no money from the University of North Dakota. Not surprisingly, there aren¹t a lot of grants for philosophy out there and there are even fewer for public philosophy. We rely almost entirely on our listeners. So, we are asking you to please donate. Your contribution is tax deductible, and because Why? Radio is so inexpensive to produce (every guest volunteers his or her time), your donation goes a long way. A very long way.
We would also like to offer you an incentive.

For gifts of $25 or more, donors will receive the world jazz CD Lua e Sol from Mark Weinstein (while supplies last). This is the album that contains all of the wonderful music that makes up the show¹s soundtrack.

For gifts of $100 or more, donors will receive a handful of his CDs, remarkable music from Brazil, Cuba, and some straight-ahead jazz. You can visit Mark¹s website and listen to his other music at http://jazzfluteweinstein.com/ 

Donations of $250 or more will get the CD¹s and you¹ll be named on the air as an episode¹s sponsor. You¹ll be a role-model for all of our listeners.
So please visit our website to donate: http://www.philosophyinpubliclife.org/donate.html

Because really, if you won¹t support philosophy, who will?

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to Why? Radio.
