Call You and Yours

On Call You & Yours we'll be talking about the value of a cultural education and who is best placed to teach our children about culture, heritage, history and the arts.

Last April the Education Secretary Michael Gove launched a major review of Cultural Education. He said 'Every child should be exposed to rich cultural opportunities. Too often, this is a privilege reserved for the wealthy few. This must change.'

On Tuesday 28th February 2012 the government will publish its findings, and outline how it plans to give every school child in England 'a well rounded education and the opportunity to experience and take part in performance and visual arts'.

If you benefitted from a broad cultural education, has it improved your quality of life or employment prospects? Or do you feel you are in a cultural wasteland and regret not learning more about music, art or theatre when you were young?

Do you think schools should take the lead role in delivering cultural and artistic education as they have the best access to ALL social and economic groups. Or are extra trips and cultural activities a luxury that most schools simply don't the have time or money for?

If you want to have your say you can email via our web page; and don't forget to leave a contact number where we can reach you.

Or call us on 03700-100-400 until 10am on Tuesday 28th February or after that on 03700 100-444
