From last month.........
Sgrìobh John Wood:
> What on earth is the British education system coming too?
Sgrìobh Ed Donnelly:
> I'm a product of that system from the mid 80s through to the mid 90s.
> Throughout all that time I can remember one history project that dealt
> with a period before 1850, which was about Queen Elizabeth I, during my
> first year at comprehensive school. Other than that, every history
> course has concentrated mainly on the 20th century in the period between
> the two World Wars. There was a "Tudors and Stewarts" A-level course at
> the college I went to, but only 6 people were on it and they dropped it
> the year after I left because it returned universally bad results. At
> university, where I studied history for a couple of terms, half the
> course was on the 20th century, the other half was on early mediaeval
> Europe - that's the first structured look I can remember at anything
> more than 100 years old.
> So it's not the students fault, blame the curriculum!

Hae a keek:
Schools ignore it - but is it time for the empire to strike back?
I would be interested in any comments, on-list or off-list.
