Missing a trick! What is wrong with today’s curriculum?
‘A good education is dependent on learning and obtaining knowledge of the subject,’ says Nick Gibb.
I agree that you need to learn facts and information within a subject in order to be able to talk about it. Knowledge is power. However, in order to truly master something you need to have the time and space to think about it and delve deeper.
If we want our children to have a deeper understanding of subjects why then are we so intent on adding so much content into the curriculum that there is no time to deepen the understanding of the knowledge we are learning. Is this a good education or could it be better? What’s that saying… less is more.
