Awkward facts about languages
Mr Moys is disingenuous when he states that I have borrowed arguments from he Nuffield report. I put those arguments in a very different context.
For example, in calling for bettter careers information I would invite learners to ask questions about the value of languages to them. The value of a foreign language can go down as well as up.
The blind spot on the Nuffield retina is its determination to produce a display cabinet for foreign languages. It suffers from its unwillingness to engage with awkward facts and contrary views.
