Does the curriculum prepare children for the future?
In this episode, we look at whether the current curriculum is preparing children for their future? is a broad and balanced curriculum ever attainable? and which future are we actually teaching towards? We also discuss toddler groups set up and ran as 'dad-friendly' groups and whether children should be allowed to opt-out of education.  As always plenty of different views and friendly debate - enjoy!
