Primary education has got progressively worse over the last 10 years (or more). It is now so bad that I truly pity what we are churning out. Teachers, heads, university lecturers and those higher up MUST be blind to the staringly obvious fact that the prescriptive, dull, lifeless and incredibly picky and analytical drivel that they deliver to the children serves no purpose other than to switch off the potential for any meaningful learning. Maths in Primary school = Confusion English (Literacy) = Minute dissection Science = excuse for more literacy Other subjects = more literacy and a worksheet PE = Actually OK! RE = complete waste of time We are doomed!
