Should we scrap the National Curriculum?


The way children are taught is now so "formulaic and mechanised" that its time for another great debate on education, similar to that started by James Callaghan 30 years ago. That is the view of the master of Wellington College, Anthony Seldon. He'll be proposing the idea at a debate on education at the British Library tonight. Anthony Seldon and Peter Hyman, a former strategist for Tony Blair, and now deputy head at comprehensive in London, debate the future of education in the UK.
