Let's tackle today's controversies. Each week we will explore two issues grouped under that week's topic (race, education, health care, media, money, politics, and justice). The specific issues we will address include inequality, special education, partisanship, censorship, Affirmative Action, traditional justice, restorative justice, social media, and eight more. Mini-lectures on psychology concepts, medical models, economics topics, and philosophical perspectives will give us frameworks for open discussions of modern dilemmas.
