Prof Harvey Seigel, U of Miami – Calling for an End to the Threat of Closure of H and P

Wed, Oct 28, 2009

Dear all,

Please allow me to add my voice to those calling for an end to threat to close OISE’s program in History and Philosophy of Education. I won’t repeat all the obvious arguments against closure that you no doubt have already heard from the program’s friends. I will say, simply, that the world of education needs the perspective gained from the scholarly study of its humanistic dimensions, and that closing the program would have the effect of leaving educational scholarship in an impoverished state. I hope you will be able to keep this important and vibrant community alive, so that it can continue its important work.
