2 hrd 4 skool

"Shakespeare's plays and other great works of literature considered too difficult for some pupils will disappear from classrooms under proposed changes to the curriculum, alarmed principals say.

There are also fears that basic content in maths, history and business studies will be axed in a drive to make subjects easier, "dumbing down" schoolchildren and further undermining NCEA..."

Playing to the bottom denominator yet again. I wish they wouldn't do that. The thickos shall remain as dumb as mud, no matter how far they lower the bar.

'I had to read Shakespeare at school, but for mine own part, it was Greek to me.'
