Back to basics

The long awaited draft detail of the National Curriculum wont be out until tomorrow but, as any long-time reader of this blog would know, I’ve got strong reservations about it. Those fears weren’t really soothed with the Prime Minister’s quote in the AGE today.

Mr Rudd said the objective was, ”without apology, to get back to the absolute basics on spelling, on sounding out letters, on counting, on adding up, on taking away.

”The basics that I was taught when I was at primary school a long time ago, and that’s what our national curriculum is all about.” he said.

As if that could possibly be a good thing?
