History boggles minds but also opens them...

- according to a recent Guardian article lamenting the alienation of pupils from current history teaching.

The demise of enthusiasm for history as a currciulum subject was given some considerable space in Ofsted's 2011report, which allocates blame to the marginalisation of the subject in England's schools.

Abstact for report:

"This report evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of history in primary and secondary schools. It is based principally on evidence from inspections of history between April 2007 and March 2010 in 166 maintained schools in England. Part A focuses on the key inspection findings in the context of rising standards since the previous report in 2007. Part B discusses some of the key issues facing history teachers and describes the essential components of effective learning in history. Both parts of the report give examples of good practice. This report builds on Ofsted’s 2007 report, History in the balance."
