100 per cent flop;FE Focus;Letter

If Ngaio Crequer's review (TES, April 24) of the Royal Society of Arts report Redefining Art is to be trusted, I would judge the report as follows:

* 40 per cent self-evident nonsense reflecting current fads; * 40 per cent blatant empire-building on behalf of the education vested interest; * 20 per cent interesting but not particularly original ideas.

Disappointing for an organisation which one had supposed to be independent and hardheaded.
