A newly-proposed national curriculum for British schools means that the schools will no longer attempt to teach the difference between right and wrong. As The Times [London] reports:
Schools would no longer be required to teach children the difference between right and wrong under plans to revise the core aims of the National Curriculum.
Instead, under a new wording that reflects a world of relative rather than absolute values, teachers would be asked to encourage pupils to develop “secure values and beliefs”.
In addition, a responsibility to teach Britain’s cultural heritage is also to be removed in favor of this: “The school curriculum should contribute to the development of pupils’ sense of identity through knowledge and understanding of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural heritages of Britain’s diverse society.”
