Abstract: In 1999 I was approached by Jim Garrison (then editor-in-chief of Studies in Philosophy and Education) and Terry McLaughlin (then chair of the International Network of Philosophers of Education) with the question whether I was willing to become the next editor of Studies in Philosophy of Education. I was honoured by the request and started working behind the scenes from the end of that year onwards. Fifteen years later I come to the end of my editorship and it gives me great pleasure to introduce and welcome Barbara Thayer-Bacon as the next editor-in-chief of Studies in Philosophy and Education. Barbara brings a wealth of experience to the task and a deep insight in the international field of philosophy of education. What also gives me great pleasure is that at last one of the major international English-language philosophies of education journals will have a female editor. I am extremely pleased that Studies in Philosophy and Education is making history—although it has been long overdue.
