The Philosophy in Schools leaf of PhilPapers focuses on academic publications and research content that centres on philosophy as a practice in, for and about schools. Philosophy for/ with Children (P4/wC) as a theory, method, and approach are in the main the preoccupation of such focus. Emanating out of the seminal work of Matthew Lipman and Anne Margaret Sharpe at Montclaire University, United States, Philosophy for/with Children over a scan of plus four decades has come to include a body of scholarship from across the world that has traversed in several noted directions. This body of scholarship particularly homes in on the contributions, complexities and contradictions explored and tested on P4/wC as a tool for engaging thoughtfully in and for schooling both explicitly and implicitly. The Philosophy in Schools category includes papers on work with/by teachers in- and pre-service and in school learners. Aspects of research and practice collectively and singularly around the use of P4/wC in teacher education and training that involves philosophy in schools as theoretical or conceptual frameworks, methodological and empirical practice and or reviewed in literature are welcome. This leaf should avoid papers on Philosophy of Education which has its own category on this website. Papers on Philosophy in Schools that focus on the theory, practice, curriculum implementation and research endeavours of authors are herein found.
