England's education secretary Michael Gove this week presented the new version of the history curriculum as being only slightly altered from the previous draft. Teachers, he said, could enjoy "a greater level of flexibility over how to structure lessons" and increased coverage of world history. But critics pointed out that there would be much less focus on the chronological teaching of Britain's "island story" compared with the previous version.

Relieved by the history curriculum released today. Nowhere near as bad as anticipated #historyteacher.


Many younger people are never taught the history of our nation's birth. By-product of the curriculum being corrupted by liberals.


BREAKING: Fury as teachers "quite like" finalised national curriculum. "It's a sad day for angry people," said a spokesperson.
