I love that your response has an inherent message of positivity in it. I love too that you are questioning Orr’s thoughts, as this is the hope for this course. Much has actually changed since that speech but in many ways the problems still persist. I agree with your point about ignoranse and I hope that your point about the relationship between knowledge and morality. Though I have seen many knowledgable people happy to put aside their morality in order to reach a goal I have also seen much of the connection you describe. I suppose the important thing is that, as educators, we need to recognize that morality is part of the conversation and that having a larger perspective (the multiple lenses) is important in moving in that direction. Thank you so much for sharing!
