Subject: OISE H &P closing protest
To Whom it May Concern:
I lend my voice to the protest against the closing of OISE’s History and Philosophy of Education program. This program has the highest international repute. According to the memo of OCGS, September 29, some of the empirical claims on the basis of which the closing of the program is being recommended are factually false. It would be a severe loss to the humanistic study of education were it to close.
