The Philosophy in the Schools Project was founded at the 2000 Congress in Edmonton, Alberta. The CPA's then president, Steven Davis, invited philosophers from across the country to a session organized to raise the profile of philosophy as a 'teachable subject' in Canada's schools. The philosophers who gathered agreed to form a loose coalition designed to advance that goal.
Philosophy is not taught in any systematic way prior to college or university and we think it ought to be. Given the traditional focus of public school education on foundational subject areas and recent trends towards accommodating subject areas formerly limited to post secondary institutions in pubic school curricula, one ought to ask ‘Why no philosophy in schools?'.
