Did the forum spot the Govt scrapping of A level Food tech in the reforms announced 16thJuly? No home ec either. Apparently 'leading' universities don't require it to study Food Science. The health of the nation and wealth created by the food industry appears to have passed the DfE by. I have written to the editor TES and Guardian Ed desk in the hope of raising the profile. Changes to *** Des and Textiles look promising.
