Celebrities Call for More Creative Education in Schools

    Sir Lenny Henry and model Adwoa Aboah have co-signed a letter championing the value of creative subjects. Photographer Rankin and director Sam Taylor-Johnson have also signed up. The letter’s release coincides with this year’s A-level results, which showed further decreases in the number of students taking drama and music.

    The letter from the Creative Industries Federation calls on the government to recognize the “critical” role of creative education for young people in the creative industries and the economy as a whole.
