ABSTRACT

Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H) has a fragmented education system which is resistant to progressive changes. Therefore, implementing a program such as the Philosophy for Children (P4C) may make a significant impact on the lives of students and their teachers. In this paper, we discuss some potential benefits of the program and anecdotal evidence of its efficacy in two B&H schools. The TPO Foundation, an NGO from Sarajevo -Transcultural Psychosocial Educational Foundation (TPO Fondacija, Equal opportunities and freedom of choice without discrimination on any ground), which has organized the first training in P4C for teachers from several cantons in B&H, is working on creating a framework for initiating the implementation of philosophy for children in cantonal education systems in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. This paper includes two cases of the implementation of P4C in two schools, through school courses, namely Religious Studies and English Language. The results of the study showed the program is very interesting to students and has a potential to improve school effectiveness in multiple ways. The findings of this study may help instructors to plan and organize their classes to acquire educational objectives in good and productive classroom atmosphere.

Keywords: philosophy for children, P4C, community of inquiry, B&H education
