Many of them seem to have either missed the original article or chosen minor points to comment on, so I would like to state the main points of my objections clearly.
First I oppose any alteration to the national curriculum for the next five years, preferably for the next ten.
Second, I support the Dearing version of the national curriculum. It is a workable compromise by a relatively impartial umpire. Any subject area that seeks to improve its position can only do so at the expense of others.
Third, I don't like lobby groups that try to promote their case with inaccurate statements.
This sort of professional discussion should be open and above board.
