A-Level (Pre-College) Philosophy Threatened in UK


We face a situation where the A Level Philosophy may soon no longer exist such that we can continue to lament its supposed flaws and where the general perception of the subject amongst exam boards including but not limited to AQA is one of toxicity bordering on viciousness.

An article in The Philosophers Magazine details some of the problems facing the pre-university qualification in philosophy, and suggests that it may cease to exist. Alleged problems include: philosophical inaccuracies, flawed and unpredictable grading, and conflict over the curriculum. (via @zaranosaur)

Any UK philosophers want to help clarify the situation (for those unfamiliar with A-levels) or weigh in with their thoughts about it?
