I have started a petition against the proposal to create a prescribed reading list for Primary schools. The idea is fundamentally flawed. The petition is in the form of retweets of my initial opposition (TWITTER @alanpeat) I am willing to put my reasons in print and wish to write a long piece for the TES regarding the foolishness of this proposal. The more retweets my message of opposition gets the greater the chance of publication. The idea is akin to saying,
'You can look at Van Gogh but close your eyes when you get near a Turner'...dreadful....action is needed.
