Mossbourne head Sir Michael Wilshaw makes the case for craft-based curriculum
by Alec Patton
This is an extract from a very interseting TES piece:
Sir Michael Wilshaw, head of Mossbourne Academy, has publicly pleaded with the Government to include a “technical and craft-based curriculum option” in its national curriculum review.
“There will always be a proportion of children in non-selective schools – and there are in my school certainly – for whom an academic curriculum is not appropriate,” said the head of the academy in Hackney, east London, currently celebrating Oxbridge offers for 10 pupils.
But education secretary Michael Gove, who has pledged to “restore academic rigour” to the national curriculum, rejected the idea that the result might not be suited to all pupils.
