Our members seek to advance educational theory, policy, and practice. They promote and advance research and teaching in the philosophy of education. They provide supportive critique and encourage scholarship.

Membership is international, open to those with a demonstrable interest in philosophy of education. The membership annual subscription fee has three options based on your income:

1. Income below AU$50,000 pa = AU$80.00
2. Income between AU$50-100,000 pa = AU$120.00
3. Income over AU$100,000 pa = AU$150.00

The Society is funded mainly from income generated through publications.  All fee rates come with the same benefits.
