Philosophy with Children for Wider Social Inclusion

About SOPHIE

It is often said that education is a right and not a privilege. This should not be just a declaration, but a guiding principle of axiomatic value in every society. It is of the outmost importance that every educator has this at the forefront of their mind. It is an educator’s civic and moral duty to make sure that every child exercises this right to its full potential. This duty probably carries the most weight in early school education, because the elementary school system is the backbone of every democratic society. It is a key factor in the process of primary socialization, an environment where the child acquires the fundamental social and learning skills and appropriates the values that are the building blocks for a compassionate, tolerant, independent and critical thinker – a responsible and engaged citizen that understands the importance of his/her role in the community.
