Why is philosophy not taught in high school?
I have heard some arguments against it, but they all seem pretty poor such as: "parents would not like their children questioning their views".
It seems like philosophy has a lot to give in a high school setting, at the very least classes like Critical Thinking would give students tools for assessing arguments.
I could understand if most people went on to college, but many don't and it seems like some of the skills which philosophy bestows could greatly benefit our society.
I really don't see why professional philosophy has not ventured down this route. I would be very thankful for any insight on this topic.
