I can hardly believe the latest load of codswallop to come from the Department of Education. As if Michael Gove wasn't bad enough, now we have Nicky Morgan.
I feel so angry that I am just putting out a short post with some links for you to follow.
Read her scathing opinion on why arts subjects are a waste of time taken from "The Stage"
Now read the eloquent and scathing response to her by Jon Payne from the Royal School of Church Music. I am with him all the way! (I hope the link works)
When I encounter such narrow-mindedness, I shudder. Poor children, being discouraged from pursuing arts and humanities subjects in order to become more ants in the global economy. How unfair!
Today I am REALLY happy to be home-educating!
That's all, folks! Rant over.
