What should schools teach?

10:10 am - 10:50 am

Barely a week goes by without any number of proposals being made as to what schools should teach their pupils. Rarely if ever do those making suggestions consider everything that is already taught, and what would need to be dropped in order to free up space for additional things.
Parents & Teachers for Excellence has been tracking recent proposals, and this session will consider some of the more interesting ones, the pressures that schools face in meeting ever growing demands on their time, and suggest ways that teachers can balance these in a sustainable way.
