Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Of course things aren't perfect, even in France (where all pupils study some philosophy)

And here's me thinking things were perfect in France :) (where all is for the best, in the best of all possible countries)

Just to clarify : all pupils who finish high school study some philosophy. This ranges from 8 hours a week for the literary streams to 5 for the scientists, down to 2 hours of "philo lite" for the technicals.

I'm following my daughter's philo with interest, because I've never formally studied any of it.
