Why isn't philosophy offered in high schools here in the United States?
I ask you this because you are gifted and a member of MENSA. Philosophy was so inspiring for me as a young person. Just a quick introduction to philosophy or psychology, I feel would be so helpful.
Thinking for yourself, and true understanding of the world, have never been the focus of public education in the US. Intruducing such concepts could shake the establishment.
I had the priveledged experience to attend a private Catholic High School and Philosophy as well as Religious Studies were offered in the high school curriculum. I think that if it isn't an isolated elective, the educators should Incorporate it into the other studies, like World Cultures (I did learn of Philosophic History in that class) and Language Arts.(Most Philosophers were in the ancient Greek and Italian Cultures, I chose to study Latin, although our text intermingled the cultures too much). Thanks for issuing in this personal educational flashback.
