The diversity of populations in Latin America and the region’s political, cultural, and economic achievements and challenges have shaped unique education philosophies and practices. Likewise, a variety of education philosophies and practices within the region have had enormous sociological, political and economic impacts on the region’s populations. There exists within Latin America a rich tradition of philosophies of education for the most part unknown and often unexamined. LAPES seeks to promote South-South and North-South dialogue regarding Latin American philosophies of education by providing scholars, students, practicing teachers, and activists opportunities to study in collaborative fashion the diverse collection of philosophical works on education produced in Latin America, or by scholars who study the region.

A central premise of LAPES is that by studying Latin American philosophies of education, scholars, teachers, activists, and students can expand their own ways of theorizing education as well as develop techniques for improving educational practices in the United States and elsewhere. To advance this premise, LAPES aims to make resources available to individual and collective parties interested in inquiring into Latin American questions on philosophy of education through professional development activities and other intellectual events.
