Media Studies anyone?

Telegraph reports:
"The study of modern foreign languages is in free fall at a time when young people face competition in the jobs market from multi-lingual Eastern Europeans, according to this year's trends survey."

Times Online reports: "the number of pupils choosing science A-levels has collapsed in a generation,"

The numbers taking the "Classics" is miniscule so apart from a bit of English and Maths what are they studying?


Media Studies (how to write stories), Catering Studies (cooking), Art and Design (finger painting). Need I go on?

When the government virtually guarantees that everyone will pass and that they will all go on to university why should anyone attempt something hard?
