The Philosophy of Education Society is pleased to sponsor the annual collections of some of the best work in our field. Each year the Philosophy of Education Society invites its members to submit work for possible inclusion in this collection, and these papers are carefully reviewed by an Editor and Editorial Committee. The refereeing process is anonymous and rigorous; the committee rejects more than half of the essays submitted. Accepted essays are comments upon and returned to their authors for revision. They should be counted as refereed publications.
