Education Forum Podcast 30: Defence of Subjects

The latest Education Forum podcast is available for download now.             

Daisy Christodoulou (managing director, The Curriculum Centre), Martin Johnson (deputy general secretary, Association of Teachers and Lecturers), Tim Oates (group director of Assessment Research and Development, Cambridge Assessment) and Alka Sehgal Cuthbert (PhD researcher, education, University of Cambridge) debate the return of subjects. Should the return to a subject-based education be applauded? Does it represent backward-looking nostalgia or an attempt to democratise access to powerful knowledge?
