Education in Wales is changing (Saesneg/English)

The cottages and houses
The villages and towns The streets and the communities
This is our common ground Here every hour’s an inspiration
Every day’s a legacy Every life finds its foundation
Where we learn who we could be School
Where Wales was made Where Grand Slam winners learned to play
Where Welsh artists, singers, actors, thinkers First stepped onto the stage
To shine They saw the world with new eyes
Made hadron particles collide There’ve been four Welsh winners of the
Nobel Prize And someone somewhere right now might
Be dreaming of becoming Number five And so it’s time
To make our mark To say this is where our journey starts
It’s time to show the world What Wales knows
How strong we can stand How tall we can grow
That we’ve got ideas And skills we can share
What brought us here Can take us anywhere What vision will we bring to life?
How far will our ambition fly? We’re the world shapers
The future makers We are #TeamWales

    Truly bizarre and bordering on delusion, the Welsh ‘establishment’ is out of control and hell bent of destroying most of our youngsters and their learning opportunities.

    If anyone reads the new curriculum in all its ‘glory’, you’ll discover the invisible elephant that has been the curse of the chronic decline of Welsh education standards, still thriving but still invisible.

    This elephant is going to be even bigger as the new curriculum is applied and will haunt those who put in place above all other considerations.

    We have seen dreadful PISA outcomes and this nothing compared to what’s going to happen in a few years time, but curious who will be blamed then?

    If you haven’t guessed it, the invisible elephant is the imposed Welsh language in disguise, a language that is forced on our children who are losing precious learning time on the subjects that matter.

    The KS2 statistics clearly show the link between the Welsh language and standards decline in children with no Welsh at home (80%+).

    The new curriculum’s key intention is to grow Welsh speakers and gradually remove English Medium Education for primary school children.

    So, if the children can’t understand the school language, how are they going to learn?

    An abhorrent form of Social Engineering that must be stopped IMO.

    Will there be programming from an early age so Welsh children aren't redundant in the modern World?
