Philosophy sessions 'boost primary school results'
Hope this is not considered spamming, it's really an interesting article and it came from a reliable news site. Apologies if it is.

Article from the BBC - very interesting.

Philosophy sessions boost primary school results

"I love the term magic realism. It's about expanding how you see the world. I think we live in an age where we're just hammered to think this is what the world is. Everything's saying 'That's the world.' And it's not the world. The world is a million possible things." - TG

I am a bit of a delinquent. I accepted a task to teach Religion in my local school (12 to 17 years old). I instead teach ethic and philosophie in my classroom. Good thing, nobody really care about that kind of classes in my area else I could have some problem by not respecting the cursus. My students love it and it indeed improve their skills in other classes especially history (which I also teach and science). It should become more common place.
