Corrupt the Youth: Bring Philosophy to the Schools

Through a link to this blog post at the philosophy teaching blog In Socrates' Wake, I found out about PLATO, the Philosophy Learning And Teaching Organization, which is "a national support and resource-sharing organization for parents teachers, philosophers, and others involved in teaching philosophy to pre-college students." (note to PLATO's web-designer: the main text on the website should be actual text, not an image of text).

Does anyone know of countries/places/particular schools where logic and/or critical reasoning courses are staple elements of the K-12 (or equivalent) curriculum?
