Public consultation of GCSE science curriculum

The UK government has just launched a public consultation on plans to reshape the GCSE science curriculum in this country.

That sounds like a good thing. But science teacher, filmmaker, and Guardian blogger Alom Shaha thinks that just now – as the school term is closing and students, parents, and teachers take off for summer holidays – is a very poor time to do it. He also thinks that the form of the consultation doesn’t lend itself to easy contribution: you have to read several different PDFs and then complete several lengthy forms.

So Shaha’s created another website, which he hopes will be an easier forum for educators and those who care about science eduction. He has secured promises that that input will be considered in the consultation as well.

If you care about changing science education in the UK you should check out both pages and contribute in whatever way is best for you.
