Plato's Philosophy of Education and the Common Core Debate
Murphy, Madonna M.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Association for the Development of Philosophy Teaching (ADOPT) Spring Conference (De Paul University, Chicago, IL, Apr 25, 2015)
This paper examines Plato's Philosophy of Education asking what he would say about the current Common Core initiative which is to better help students to become college and career ready. Plato would be in favor of the common core in as much as the standards are tied to specific skills needed in various career jobs as he was a proponent of "vocational education" or getting the education that you need in order to do a particular job; but Plato would not support the common core since he feels that education should be different for those who possess more ability and not just be the same learning for all.
