Peter Worley and Francis Gilbert talk on sky news about Philosophy for Children.
The Philosophy Foundation is a unique educational charity whose aim is to bring philosophy to schools and the wider community. Through doing philosophy in the classroom our primary concern is to improve educational opportunities for the disadvantaged, and to enable every child to flourish. Philosophical enquiry develops speaking and listening skills vital for literacy and emotional development, helps children who find it difficult to access other classes, and encourages critical and creative thinking essential in the 21st Century.
One of our core purposes is to encourage, support and sponsor non-privileged children into studying philosophy at University.
