Publicity Description:"Justice and the Distribution of Educational Opportunity." It is commonplace for politicians and policymakers to begin with the premise that there ought to be "equality of educational opportunity." What does this concept mean? What are its limitations? And does it provide meaningful guidance for public policy? This talk will specifically examine John Rawls’s principle of fair equality of opportunity and the kinds of inequalities it does and does not address. . The speaker, Justice Goodwin Liu, is a justice on the California Supreme Court. Co-sponsored by ACS and APALSA. Lunch will be served.
