The Philosophy Learning & Teaching Organization has been by our side from day one. They were our first grantors and have continued to support our organization annually in various ways since 2017. In June of this year, we were interviewed by PLATO and asked various questions about:
- Starting a Philosophy Community Initiative
- Our Program Highlights
- Our Goals & Visions
- And more…
For those of you unfamiliar with this awesome organization, here’s the scoop: PLATO’s general mission includes promoting philosophy classes “for all K-12 students, including those in classrooms least likely to have access to academic enrichment programs. Bringing together the education and philosophy communities, [they] celebrate diversity within the philosophy classroom and endorses a wide variety of philosophical approaches and methods.” PLATO also supports philosophy outside of the classroom….including doing philosophy in the community!! YAY FOR US!
Thank you so much to Plato: Philosophy Learning & Teaching Organization for your belief in our org and support of our philosophy in the community program! We had a great time doing this interview and thinking about the ways that Merlin CCC has taken shape.
