Will revision of the school curriculum improve standards?
Under the review, a panel of experts will examine what is taught in England's schools. Mr Gove has told them that English, maths, science and PE must remain compulsory for children of all ages.
Speaking on the BBC's Today programme, Mr Gove said the panel would determine what content should be specified in the new curriculum. "I'm not going to be coming up with any prescriptive lists, I just think there should be facts".
However, Mary Bousted, general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, has said: "Ministers' desire to return to the public school curriculum they were taught over 25 years ago is not in the best interests of today's young people."
What do you think of the reduction of the school curriculum? What improvements would you like to see to the education system? What subjects would you like to see taught? Are you a parent or teacher?
