Churchill dropped from England's history syllabus
Britain's World War II prime minister Winston Churchill has been cut from a list of key historical figures recommended for teaching in English secondary schools, a government agency says.
The radical overhaul of the school curriculum for 11- to 14-year-olds is designed to bring secondary education up to date and allow teachers more flexibility in the subjects they teach, the Government said.
But although Adolf Hitler, Mahatma Gandhi, Joseph Stalin and Martin Luther King have also been dropped from the detailed guidance accompanying the curriculum, Mr Churchill's exclusion is likely to leave traditionalists aghast.
British kids won't have Churchill as part of their curriculum?
That would be the equivalent of taking FDR out of ours. I don't get this as all.
But I guess since they took Hitler out, Churchill doesn't make much sense without him.
