This country’s Education Minister is making me want to move to Australia.
This guy has proposed a new history curriculum 50 times larger than the current curriculum- AND HE STILL ISN’T GOING TO MAKE HISTORY A CORE SUBJECT!
In order for teachers to teach the new curriculum, they need 9 years. But Micheal Gove isn’t going to expand history into a core subject- which will allow teachers to teach students for 9 years so the curriculum can be taught properly.
Either A) Have history a core subject (like English, Maths and Science), so teachers can teach the new curriculum or B) Have history taught as it is now.
But wait! It gets worse! Apparently he’s saying all non-European topics should be removed, so that’s Micheal Gove being a bias cheesy-brain.
What about Japan’s invasion of Asia? You gonna leave that out? How about India’s independence or America’s independence? Anything? Oh sorry, you can’t hear me because you’re being bias towards European history! Or, hmmm, the EGYPTIANS!
But wait! IT GETS WORSE! According to some historians, he wants to teach the spread of Christianity through Britain.
But we have a subject which deals with that. Yeah, its called-
Also, according to BBC History Magazine, in the new curriculum, there will be no obligation to examine the legacy of the British Empire in the world today. If this is true, then this is my response…
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE JOKING!
How can anyone teach European history without learning about the British Empire!?
In fact, lots of everyday things in Britain are because of the Empire, like tea and sugar.
I am not a happy person. If all this is true, then Micheal Gove is scrapping a perfectly good curriculum into a huge subject which leaves out important facts and replaces them with stuff that should be taught in other subjects.
