Gove considering to axe D&T

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by jmssingler, Feb 29, 2012.

  1. <font size="3">I am extremely concerned to find out that the
    Government is considering removing Design and Technology from the National
    Curriculum. I have been a Design and Technology teacher for 10 years and
    believe that Design and Technology is key to building the learning ability of
    the young people in my care.</font>

    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font><font size="3">We teach them how to think independently. </font>

    <font size="3">The students that we teach have to plan, make
    reasoned choices, communicate, problem solve and evaluate. They have to
    consider the world outside of their surrounding, be resourceful and work with
    each other.</font>

    <font size="3" face="Times New Roman">

    </font><font size="3">We all need these skills to get on in life,
    whether it be applying and keeping a job, organising a holiday or putting food
    on the dinner table.</font>

    <font size="3">How can Mr. Gove consider removing a subject like
    Design and Technology from the National Curriculum when it gives our young
    people such a good starting place in life?</font>

    Some things are just far too sensible for Governments to contemplate.
