Quotes on Ethics Bowl
“I was impressed both by thoughtfulness of the kids and the spirit of the event. Really liked the emphasis on insightful and polite discussion. I enjoyed everything about the ethics bowl as well evidenced perhaps by the number of people I’ve talked to about the event.”
“The range of questions was thoughtful and challenging. The students who participated were all fantastic and watching them wrestle with these difficult problems was fascinating—and hopeful.”
“I had a great time as a judge! It was a great opportunity to be involved and think deeply about those topics. Most of the teams were extremely impressive and fun to watch.”
“Giving students the opportunity to practice civil discourse in a public setting is beyond valuable. Thank you.”
“The whole event was inspiring. Being able to see students exploring complex topics, collaborating in exchanges, and expressing their thoughts with well-composed, philosophically-based critical and creative thinking does so much to reveal why philosophy in pre-college is so impactful.”
Gary Colletti, Education Policy Associate, National Association of State Boards of Education
