Full-length version of Harvard professor Michael Sandel’s presentation at WNET’s Celebration of Teaching & Learning, where he explored moral dilemmas facing education. Sandel is the best-selling author of “Justice: What’s the Right Thing to Do?” and his lectures on ethics have been broadcast on PBS.

Should schools pay students to get good grades? Should wealthy parents be allowed to donate money to improve the public schools their children attend? These are the types of questions that Harvard professor and ethicist Michael Sandel asked of New York area educators at WNET’s Celebration of Teaching & Learning.
