We at the Center are committed to encouraging philosophical reflection on contemporary issues in education. This study guide was developed for use in undergraduate and graduate education, philosophy, and sociology classes. It’s available for free download. If you use it, we’d love to hear how it goes.

This teaching guide is a companion to the podcast episode on navigating educational opportunity. Based on Christopher Jencks’s 1988 paper, “Whom Must We Treat Equally for Educational Opportunity to Be Equal?” this teaching guide helps students understand and critically evaluate Jencks’s five principles of justice.
