Congratulations to Philadelphia High School students and students in PHIL 249 on a successful conference, Pedagogy in Practice.

Students in PHIL 249 (Philosophy of Education) organized and chaired the conference "Pedagogy in Practice" in which students from Philadelphia public schools presented papers on philosophy of education and pedagogy. Penn students mentored the high school students through the semester as part of a Academically Based Community Service course through weeky meetings, and worked with them on papers. The course culminated in a day long conference in which the high school students presented their work.
