Philosophy and Ethics in Western Australian Secondary Schools
Millett, Stephan; Tapper, Alan
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n11 p1212-1224 2014
The introduction of Philosophy and Ethics to the Western Australian Certificate of Education courses in 2008 brought philosophy into the Western Australian secondary school curriculum for the first time. How philosophy came to be included is part of a larger story about the commitment and perseverance of a relatively small number of Australian educators and their belief in the value of introducing philosophical communities of inquiry into school classrooms through a revised pedagogy which could sit comfortably with an outcomes-based education system.
