Letter: Lack of chemistry between students and science

Click to follow
Sir: Again we read with some dismay about the decline of science education in schools (leading article, 20 August). Having had an excellent education in Scotland, studying three science subjects and two arts subjects to 'Higher' standard, I find it hard to believe that the Government (in England) does not take pride in its education system in Scotland (and also in Northern Ireland) and implement a similar broader-based system south of the border.

Students wishing to study arts and science would have the freedom to do so, and would not have to make career choices at such an early age.

Yours faithfully,


Histon, Cambridgeshire
