Did anyone hear the interview on Radio 4 Today programme this morning with the Culture Secretary Andy Burnham? John Humphries ran him ragged when he tried to get an explanation as to what it was the government wanted schools to do and exactly how they were going to fit it into the school week. "Every school child is to receive five hours of "high quality culture" per week according to new government plans. We talk to Culture Secretary Andy Burnham. Listen to the interview Announcement of 10 pilot schemes costing £25 million" John Humphries passed on the calculation that the "additional" money equated to £15 per pupil and then the Secretary was going on about taking children to opera etc - He should have listened to that Barnsley MP, for the same money they could see loads more brass band concerts than opera. There's also a report on the BBC News site. Looking forward to seeing some of that £25million coming along to a few bands.
