The government are reforming GCSE's to the Ebacc ( English Baccalaureate), it has already started, but by 2015 Michael Gove wants the curriculum to consists of five pillars, where creative subjects are not included. The creative industry and colleges are campaigning to include a sixth pillar, which includes the creative subjects.
If you think we should be including creative subjects, please get involved and spread the word.
A quote from a Guardian article "A recent poll by Ipsos Mori shows that over the last year alone 27% of schools cut courses as a direct result of the Ebacc measure. The previous year the figure was even higher at 45%. Of the courses cut, drama, performing arts, art and design, and design and technology are the worst hit."
I would be really interested in people's views regarding this.
