Why wait until college?

Check out this article from the Washington Post describing how some students at one middle school spend their lunchtime at a meeting of their Philosophy Club. I had a prospective student from the other side of the U.S. tell me a similar club at his high school was very popular. Why don't we see more of this? Do you think it'd be helpful if students were exposed to philosophy earlier in their career?

I agree. When I was in middle school, or even high school 7 years ago, we had no philosophy classes or groups at all. i would have loved it though, it teaches a young person of the conscious mind earlier, I mean eventually they figure it out, but then also implementing logic and reason, understanding, and so much more. Great way to get brains started towards great things.

Very nice, the colleges have some different vision to teach the kids which is very smart way. Being in the class makes children boring. its good that they experiment in teaching way.
