Logic in Education sign now

This Petition seeks the attention of every person and group having an interest in the quality of our childrens education, and in the quality of our thinking as adults.

This Petition demands the immediate inclusion of formal instruction in logic as a mandatory component of all basic compulsory education curricula.

We, the Petitioners, maintain that learning the basics of logic and reason should not be optional, in any modern developed or developing society... local, national or global.

Why do we receive formal training in art, but not the art of thinking, in modern compulsory education?

Logic is just as easy to learn as mathematics, and equally important.

Logic is perhaps more fundamental than any other discipline, and provides the basis for obtaining real knowledge in them all. The teaching of mathematics, grammar, language arts, history and science are not substitutes for the formal teaching of logic. However, the formal teaching of logic would clearly benefit learning and practice in all these areas and more.

Logic is not an advanced subject for a college-educated elite, but a foundational discipline that can and should be formally taught at an early age to all student-citizens.

Are our teachers and education administrators ignorant of the simple disciplines and benefits of logic or jealous of their own intellectual prerogatives? Neither, we hope.

Finding no reason why it should not be taught, and every reason why it should, we urge our educators to actively work for the immediate introduction of formal logic instruction into compulsory education curricula at all levels.
