The Philosophy Foundation (formerly The Philosophy Shop - an educational charity that does philosophy in schools: www.philosophy-foundation.org ) have recently signed a contract with Crown House Publishing to produce a book called 'The Philosophy Shop'. A mix of ideas / stimuli / thought experiments / activities / (very) short stories / questions / pictures / music to get people thinking philosophically and about philosophy.
The proceeds of the book are going towards The Philosophy Foundation charity, to help realise the charity's aims which include being able to support disadvantaged children who want to study philosophy at University, supporting philosophy in schools in deprived areas, and bringing the benefits of learning good thinking to children that might not otherwise get such an opportunity.

Philosophy Now Radio Show #30 |
Should schools teach philosophy? When literacy and numeracy levels have not improved in 55 years, shouldn’t teachers be concentrating on improving the three Rs rather than introducing a fourth? Peter Worley, co-founder and CEO of The Philosophy Foundation, talks with Michael Hand from the Institute of Education and Stephen Boulter from Oxford Brookes University about whether children can do philosophy, and if schools should teach it, how should it be done? First broadcast on 13 March 2012 on Resonance FM.
