“Harper High School, Parts One and Two” podcast

(Aired February 15 and February 22, 2013)

Description: This two-part podcast follows the lives of students and adults at Harper High School, a school located in a neighborhood with extremely high levels of gun and gang violence. The episodes discuss how gang membership is shaped by the neighborhood and calls into question the idea that young people choose to be in gangs. This lends itself to discussion of autonomy and flourishing (see Harry Brighouse’s, On Education).

Topics/Themes: Segregation, School discipline, Moral education
