George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Inst. for Educational Leadership.; National Public Radio, Washington, DC.
Teaching about moral issues is discussed in this transcript of "Options in Education," an electronic weekly magazine. Directed toward educators and students, the program covers news, features, policy, and people in the field of education and is available for broadcasting to member stations of National Public Radio. Seventeen montages deal with values clarification, morality, moral dilemmas, alienation, secular humanism, and controversial curriculum materials. Discussants include students, teachers, professors, school board members, authors, and directors of national associations including the National Education Association, the Street Law Program, the National Right to Life Movement, and Planned Parenthood. Subjects that are dramatized focus on the right to lie and steal under extreme conditions, the appropriateness of transmitting moral values through public education, values clarification versus traditional American values, teacher values versus student values, conflict between parental and societal values, teaching sex education in school, and controversial textbooks.
