Sean Lang on History Teaching

There is an excellent letter by Sean Lang on the controversy surrounding the teaching of history published in today’s Independent. Sean, senior lecturer in history at Anglia Ruskin University, honorary secretary of the Historical Association and a passionate advocate for the discipline, knows of what he speaks. His letter is a firm corrective to some of the ignorant assertions made by some members of the commentariat.

"Commentariat" - what a great word. Will have to instantly steal it and pretend it's mine. Your posts on history teaching and its importance in schools have been spot on, by the way: surely this is one of those classic issues that will draw cross-party support and actually make the Government change its mind... (I live in hope, anyway!)
