What could Brexit mean for the IB?
The Independent newspaper, in the United Kingdom (UK), has published an article looking at what Brexit could mean for the IB.
Discussing the main difference between the UK and the rest of Europe, author Rachael Pells writes “The UK is certainly unusual in that it does not ask pupils to continue with numeracy and literacy after the age of 16 or 17 – a standard requirement for much of Europe”
The article goes on to quote Richard Markham, Head of Hockerill Anglo-European College, who said “Education should be used as a means of achieving peace and as a means of achieving collaboration and international understanding. I cannot commend that sort of philosophy highly enough”.
