Citizenship and History

There is nothing wrong with teaching both, or anything for that matter, as long as debate and disagreement are allowed. There is always the fear that ideas are taught as fact and not opinion. If we are to teach that there are specific British values then we need to be able to discuss them for to claim, for one thing, that such things exist is questionable.
Even if there are such values, which we very much doubt, then we have to decide if we are going to enforce such beliefs. For if we’re not, then why bother teaching them in the first place? Head-in-the-sand liberalism simply won’t do.
