We've commissioned an article on the curriculum - coming soon. Regarding lists I think it would be good to do both GCSE and A Level.

The recent debate raised by Cambridge English students about diversifying the curriculum is crucial but has a long history ....As Caryl Phillips once said, black children growing up in 1970s Britain were culturally 'starving'. Sadly this 1993 THES piece raised similar issues.
