Classic move

27th April 2007 at 01:00
A campaign to save ancient history A-level continued this week as Michael Fallon, Conservative MP and chairman of the all-party parliamentary classics group, pressed the Government.

Mr Fallon led an adjournment debate on the OCR exam board's proposal to subsume ancient history within classical civilisation, as revealed in The TES last month. The Joint Association of Classical Teachers is considering legal action should the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority ratify the move.
