Much has been and is being written about doing philosophy with children with a growing body of research indicating the value of introducing children at an early age to the rigours of critical, collaborative and creative inquiry. There are others who are more sceptical.
What I know is what I see as a practicing philosophy teacher. Children love it. It liberates them to have a voice, to be curious, to speculate, to wonder and to ask those ‘awkward’ questions.
My role is to keep that wonder alive. Kate Kennedy White
