Geography: learning to make a world of difference
Ofsted survey report evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of geography in schools and assessing the challenges it faces.
This Ofsted survey report draws from visits to 91 primary and 90 secondary schools (including one special school) in England between 2007 and 2010. Geography was flourishing in a minority of the schools visited and was under pressure in the rest. The report describes the value of learning geography and what needs to be done to reverse its decline.
