BBC Radio 4’s The Learning Curve did an excellent, albeit short feature, on the Open EYE campaign yesterday evening. Graham Kennish of the Open EYE steering group explained very clearly the flawed nature of the EYFS, likening it to a bright red, rosy apple with a worm in it. He also highlighted the harmful and compulsory nature of the curriculum and the seriously flawed consultation process that led to it. For those who missed it, do take the opportunity to listen again here – fast forward to the last 4 minutes of the programme.
Action Required – A CHANCE TO RESPOND
In 4 minutes it is obviously impossible to say everything and I am sure that there are lots of further points you would like to hear made. Well, here is your chance! The Learning Curve is always keen to hear from interested callers who wish to respond or add to something they heard on the last week’s programme.
Therefore, please e-mail the Learning Curve – there’s a link on the programme’s web-site, here – in the next few days, as quite apart from anything else this will help convince Libby Purves to cover this issue again in May. This is a seriously good forum for Open EYE to be involved in, and I believe we must make as much noise as humanly possible to keep the pressure up!
