Petition: Save the teaching of Ancient Greek at Camden School for Girls.
Action for government to take: The government should provide the finance for the teaching of A-Level Greek at Camden Girls' School in order to maintain access to this subject which should not be limited to a select number of schools.
See the article: http://www.theguardian.com/education/2015/mar/11/camden-school-girls-last-non-selective-state-school-ancient-greek-considers-ditching-it#comments
The reduced funding from the government may result in Ancient Greek no longer being offered. Camden School for Girls is the only non-selective state school to teach Ancient Greek.
The government have encouraged the teaching of ancient languages in primary schools and need to support the continuity of such teaching in schools such as Camden.
Thank you for your support.
