Just been reading an article in The Guardian about the fact that the exam board has decided to end A-levels in classical civilisation, archaeology and history of art. How dare they, culture barbarians.
When I was young just the fact that you had the opportunity to study Classics was seen as a sign of a civilised world, something to embrace. Whilst I appreciate that we humans do our utmost to destroy all that is beautiful in this world, that cannot mean we scrap the Classics from the curriculum.
The exam board should promote the Classics and suggest they need to start studying them to improve their understanding. This should enabe them to come to better decisions.
