The Herald reports:

The is seeking public feedback on which new NCEA level one subjects should be taught and which should be merged or scrapped altogether.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) has proposed a number of changes to the year 11 curriculum, after the gave the green-light to a “comprehensive review” of NCEA level one.

The MoE has suggested scrapping the teaching of Latin, Classical Studies and Art but adding a Māori Performing Arts option for students.

Scrapping Classics, Art and Latin? What sort of cultural barbarians would even consider this?

The classical period have had such a huge influence on the world today, that it is inconceivable you wouldn’t retain it as an option for students.
