House of Commons

Speaking during a Westminster Hall debate on the impact of the Government’s 90 per cent EBacc proposals on teaching creative arts, Catherine McKinnell MP put a question that Edge would dearly loved to have asked ourselves. A member of the Education Committee, she asked:

“Why would the Government want to limit opportunities to study subjects such as design and technology?”

Last week, we took part in the EBacc Twitter debate hosted by the House of Commons official Twitter account, remarking that, “D&T teaches young people how things are designed, developed, made and improved”.
