Children should no longer be taught traditional subjects at school because they are “middle-class” creations, a Government adviser will claim today.
Professor John White, who contributed to a controversial shake-up of the secondary curriculum, believes lessons should instead cover a series of personal skills.
Pupils would no longer study history, geography and science but learn skills such as energy- saving and civic responsibility through projects and themes.
He will outline his theories at a conference today staged by London’s Institute of Education – to which he is affiliated – to mark the 20th anniversary of the national curriculum.
Last night, critics attacked his ideas as “deeply corrosive” and condemned the Government for allowing him to advise on a new curriculum.
