Perry, Kekailoa – Educational Perspectives, 2013
In Hawai'i there is a myth known as the alamihi crab syndrome. The myth is a creation of foreign origin used to explain a Western worldview of Hawaiians.

Toyoda, Mitsuyo – Educational Perspectives, 2012
The author's first impression of the philosophy for children program in Hawai'i (p4c) was a strong, intuitive feeling that this approach to education can be a vehicle to change the world.

In 2001, Dr. Thomas Jackson, or Dr. J as the author and her colleagues affectionately call him, spoke to the faculty at Waikiki Elementary.

Kim, Angela – Educational Perspectives, 2012
When the author was first introduced to philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i, it made her cringe.

She was told that Dr. Thomas Jackson, aka Dr. J, would guide…

Lukey, Benjamin – Educational Perspectives, 2012
In spite of the many different "flavors" of philosophy for children (p4c) Hawai'i, one undeviating element involves the creation of a community for intellectually safe philosophical inquiry.

Lukey, Benjamin – Educational Perspectives, 2012
Ever since Thomas Jackson introduced philosophy for children (p4c) to Hawai'i in the mid-1980s, one of the defining characteristics of his p4c Hawai'i program has been its commitment to working with classroom teachers in Hawai'i's public schools.

Jones, Tammy – Educational Perspectives, 2012
NCLB has created a climate where teachers feel increasingly pressured to ensure their students pass the test, with the result that they allocate less time for purposeful and authentic learning experiences (Kohn, 2004). Thus, rote memorization is favored over inquiry. Teachers must aim to create a classroom environment that recognizes and values…
