21st Century Philosophy for Children

In this modern tumultuous society which we live, what a refreshing concept and tool kit that this group from UH Manoa is advocating:

  • “[A]n instructional practice that prepares students for active and meaningful engagement in civic life”?
  • “[F]ostering student-citizens who can both think for themselves and collaborate with others”?
