My thoughts on A-level Archaeology and Art History being banned.

Welcome to Tory Britain:

Not just petty nationalists (Brexit means 'controlling immigration), not just class warriors (bring back grammar schools) but pathetic philistines (banning Archaeology and Art History A-level).

Like studying Archaelogy or Art History (or anything actually) somehow narrows you down to being either an archaeologist or an art historian! Like somehow knowing such things is of no 'use' in life, work, or for you as a person! Like education shouldn't be concerned with such things! Like having teachers who teach these things or students who study them doesn't have a contribution to play to everyone's life in a school, in ways that aren't measurable!

If you have humanistic attitudes to life, education or identity, prepare to shed them now.
