Ebacc will damage

Ebacc will damage creativity and self-expression, schools and families should be getting STEAM’d up! Against a strong backlash central government have pushed forward with a policy that marginalises the Arts from the Ebacc selection. If the arts were included this would have reflected a progressive value of STEAM, that’s STEM plus the Arts; properly balanced learning options that would open the way for more unified approaches to learning. Excluding the Arts from the Ebacc is a very significant flaw in these education reforms, one that will yield longterm damage to our country. The flaws in Attainment 8 – Part 1: page: 6 of 39 Should schools be most accountable to the community or the government?

We are writing to express our grave concern about the exclusion of arts and creative subjects from the new English baccalaureate, or Ebacc, for secondary school children, which we believe will seriously damage the future of many young people in this country. There is compelling evidence that the study of creative subjects is in decline in state schools and that entries to arts and creative subjects have fallen to their lowest level in a decade. Young people are being deprived of opportunities for personal development in the fields of self-expression, sociability, imagination and creativity. This places one of our largest and most successful global industries at risk, one worth £92bn a year to the UK economy. That is bigger than oil, gas, life sciences, automotive and aeronautics combined. This is at a time when economic growth is of critical importance to the UK’s international position. A good education fit for the 21st century, must be broad and balanced. The Ebacc in its current form is not the way to achieve this. We call on the government to reverse its decision to blindly press ahead with the Ebacc, regardless of the consultation responses and in the face of overwhelming evidence against this policy. If we care about social mobility, wellbeing and economic growth – and if we want our creative industries to continue to flourish – we need to rebalance our education system so that the arts are valued just as much as other subjects. Every child should have equal access to the benefits that the arts and culture bring, not just a privileged few.
