PLATO (The Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization) advocates for and supports introducing philosophy to pre-college students; and connecting the education and philosophy communities through programs, and resource-sharing. It also seeks to develop a national network of all those working in pre-college philosophy including pre-college teachers and administrators, philosophy students (both graduate and undergraduate), and academic philosophers.
SFF supports PLATO both as a funder and as a presence on the Board of Directors. Creating a responsive, comprehensive network of pre-college philosophy teachers, and helping educators and philosophers work together, furthers SFF’s mission of introducing the subject to more pre-college students.
