Anti-capitalism teaching banned...

May well have been discussed on here but...

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/plan-your-re...dary-level

"Schools should not under any circumstances use resources produced by organisations that take extreme political stances on matters. This is the case even if the material itself is not extreme, as the use of it could imply endorsement or support of the organisation. Examples of extreme political stances include, but are not limited to:

- a publicly stated desire to abolish or overthrow democracy, capitalism, or to end free and fair elections"

Smells very Gove and BoJo

This relates to PSHE lessons and only applies to the source of the materials, it seems like a non-story designed to be a red herring in all honesty.

Personally, I'm don't find it appropriate that BUF or BCP materials should be used for PSHE lessons.

Can understand the logic behind the banning of extreme stances as long as it doesn't detract from learning about communism or socialism.

We would benefit enormously from expanding the curriculum to include: -

- negative impacts of British Empire and slavery.
- Irish history

Already on the curriculum and taught to year 8s. Over two terms

You can't expand the curriculum other bits would have to drop out.

Romans, briefly and Tudors for GCSE still taught.  Slavery been taught, at least where I worked, for at over 11 years.

Carnage of The First World War taught in depth.

I can not speak for what happened before I started there or for how long! Rolleyes (although I can say I updated some really grubby S.E.N. resources)

It was going to be 'At Least 11 years' or 'Over 11years'

(Dangerous precedent set )

All good then. It seemed a little explicit for me. Capitalism... Why not extreme socialism, climatism or any other alternative to the ruling elite's controlling tool of use?

I hope kids will be taught what liberty was.
