Greetings from the ELC’s Philosophical Advocacy Society!

The month of October proved to be an excellent time for discussions centered on educating for social and eco-justice. Educators from Texas, Tennessee, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina met in the town of Boone, Friday & Saturday, Oct. 12-13th for the 57th Annual South Atlantic Philosophy of Education Society (SAPES) Conference at Appalachian State University. Enriched with colors of yellow, orange and red—the surrounding woodlands and mountain valleys made for a lovely fall experience. Our community leader, Dr. Glenn Hudak and philosophical advocates from the Department of Educational Leadership & Cultural Foundations (UNCG), presented inspirational works on social and eco-justice.
