Ethics Symposium to Examine Age-Old School Problem

Panelists at a one-day symposium at Smith will explore a problem that has played out—seemingly forever—on school playgrounds and in hallways, but lately has moved online, too.

“Ethics and Education: Bullying in Schools and Equal Access to Quality Education,” the title of the seventh annual Ethics Symposium hosted by the philosophy department, will feature a panel on Thursday, March 24, at 4 p.m. in Weinstein Auditorium, Wright Hall.

The panel will bring together several Smith alumnae now employed in education, as teachers, administrators and therapists. Hosted by John Connolly, professor of philosophy, the panel will include:

  • Janelle Banks Bradshaw ’00, director of instructional equity, Cambridge Public Schools
  • Amy Christie ’01, network director, Achievement First Public Charter School
  • Jennifer Jencks SSW’95, a therapist in Providence, R.I., who works with children and adolescents on anxiety issues
  • Kristy Gertsen Keteitas ’88, school-based therapist, Linkages to Learning
  • moderated by Sam Intrator, professor of education and urban studies

The event is part of “Smith Women in Education,” a Smith Alumnae Association three-day conference, March 23 through 25.
