Bio

Dr. Corngold's research examines important, alternative purposes of education that are largely absent from the current public discourse surrounding school and university improvement. In particular, he is interested in how formal education can
1. equip students to live flourishing lives, in which career success is one but by no means the only element; and
2. equip students to participate as civic equals in democratic decision-making.

Dr. Corngold recently served a three year term as Executive Director of the Philosophy of Education Society (PES).
