In re: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/ History and

Philosophy of Education

As a member of the Philosophy of Education Society from Virginia, I wish to testify to the vitality and scholarly quality of OISE’s program in History and Philosophy of Education. At the annual meetings of PES which I have attended regularly since 1995, sessions of the conference led by OISE and its History and Philosophy department in particular have been well-attended and of especially high quality and interest to me as a practicing high school teacher. OISE seems to me to be a jewel in your crown. I would not want to see it diminished, especially if, as currently planned, it may become the home of an international Center for Research and Teaching of High School Philosophy. Such a Center would be a unique addition to the field of education studies coupled with practical application.

Sincerely,

Jeffrey Ayala Milligan
