Boris Johnson: Bring back Latin!

Boris Johnson continues to argue vociferously for the reinstatement of Latin on the national curriculum:

 “I firmly believe that we must not starve the minds of students eager to embrace the great intellectual disciplines of Latin. And we must stop the classics being the fodder of the independent sector alone.

“I commend the efforts of the educational organisations and volunteers bringing Latin back into state schools. I hope the event today will enthuse headteachers to join the campaign to get Latin back onto the curriculum.

“We cannot possibly understand our modern world unless we understand the ancient world that made us all and there is simply no better way than to make young minds think in a logical and analytical way.”
