Our own Director of the National High School Ethics Bowl, Dr. Alex Richardson, has been appointed to a three-year term on the American Philosophical Association’s Committee on Pre-College Instruction in Philosophy. Alex’s term will begin July 1 of this year and run through 2026.
The committee oversees activities of the association related to the teaching of philosophy at the pre-college level and initiates efforts to encourage and improve teaching at this level. It prepares periodic reports to the members of the association and facilitates cooperation between philosophers, teachers, and educational administrators in planning and evaluating instructional programs and requirements for the training and certification of teachers in areas relating to philosophy. The committee also collects and disseminates information on existing programs and instructional materials.
