Subjects Torn Up in School Review

Unattributed, BBC News, Dec 08, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

There will no doubt be criticism (the political campaign has already started) but I welcome the initiative, as it (finally) moves beyond outdated and constricting subject categories. "His interim review suggests that there could be six broader "areas of learning", rather than up to 14 individual subjects, such as history, geography and science. These six areas would be: understanding English, communication and languages; mathematical understanding; scientific and technological understanding; human, social and environmental understanding; understanding physical health and well-being; understanding the arts and design." Sound familiar?
