New qualification, (called the EBacc) for 16 year olds doesn't include Art

Today, a letter signed by 100 organisations and individuals representing a broad range of interests, from The National Portrait Gallery to the National Governors Association and including a-n's Head of Programmes and Editor Gillian Nicol, has been handed into Downing Street.

The letter, addressed to the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, is part of a campaign calling for an extended consultation period for the new English Baccalaureate Certificates (EBacc), in order to address the absence of creative and vocational subjects in the proposed new qualification for 16-year-olds.

I hope the letter is considered seriously and the new qualification is changed!
